Jambojet has added five weekly flights between Nairobi and Eldoret following what the low-cost carrier says is a response to increased passenger demand on the route.

The budget airline, a subsidiary of Kenya Airways #ticker:KQ, will now operate 18 weekly flights from its base at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) using two Bombardier Q400 aircraft.

Jambojet, which also operates two Boeing 737-300 aircraft, earlier this month suspended its daily flights to Lamu, saying that Manda Airport's poor condition makes it difficult for aircraft to land or take off.

The low-cost carrier has now channelled the ‘extra capacity’ to Eldoret, where it says business travellers plying the route have been yearning for more flexible flight schedules.
