Kenyan budget carrier Jambojet expects government approval this month to start flying to destinations outside the country, and will lease more planes to start the flights in the next two years, its chief executive said.

Airline   "We have a long list of routes"
The airline, fully owned by national carrier Kenya Airways, was established in 2014 to cater to local travellers by offering low-cost fares of as little as 3,200 shillings ($30.99) one way.

Jambojet, which carried 600,000 passengers last year using a fleet of Boeing 737s and Bombardier Q-400 planes, will consider possible international destinations after it gets approval, CEO Willem Hondius said.

"We have a long list of routes we could operate," he said, adding they could operate flights jointly with Kenya Airways or target destinations that the parent airline does not serve.
