Jambojet is set to begin flying to destinations in Tanzania, after Kenya and Tanzania cut out a bilateral trade deal cutting across the aviation sector.
The deal comes after a series of meetings that have been going between Kenya and Tanzania since May 2021, following President Samia Suluhu’s inaugural state visit to Kenya.
However, Jambojet will have to wait for a while as the two countries iron out details of the pact.
The two countries have also resolved the disputes involving, tour vans, COVID-19 clearance certificates, clearance of goods at the Namanga-Kenya-Tanzania border, and mutual recognition of engineers’ certificates.
This comes even as Jambojet has recently increased its frequency of flights to Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), from the current three times a week to four times per week, starting June 2022.
The move is seen as the carrier’s efforts stepping up competition with carriers such as RwandaAir that operates on the route.
