Jambojet suspends flights to Rwanda and Uganda

Jambojet has announced the suspension of its scheduled flights to Kigali, Rwanda and Entebbe in Uganda, over a huge drop in the number of international passengers.

In a statement, Jambojet said the decision had been arrived at following a massive drop in the number of passengers using airlines in international routes.

"Over the past few weeks there has been a global spread of the Covid-19 which has resulted in a decrease of airline passengers especially on the international routes. As a result, Jambojet has decided to suspend its services to Kigali, Rwanda and Entebbe, Uganda with immediate effect," reads part of the statement dated March 17.

The airline noted that the safety of their passengers and staff was of utmost importance, as they promised to continue monitoring the situation and give regular updates.

Jambojet also called on passengers to who had booked to travel with them to reach out through their communication channels, as they plan to have them accommodated in alternative flights.

Local flights will however, continue as scheduled.

"Our flights to local destinations namely Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa, Kisumu and Eldoret will continue to operate as scheduled," said the statement.

The suspension of flights comes shortly after Rwanda confirmed a total of 7 cases of Coronavirus in Kigali.
