Jambojet has suspended flights to neighbouring countries Rwanda and Uganda as cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to rise in some of the East African nations.
In a statement on Monday night, the airline said the outbreak of the virus in East Africa and the world at large has resulted in a decrease of airline passengers especially on the international routes forcing the airline to halt its operations in the two countries.
“Jambojet has decided to suspend its services to Kigali, Rwanda and Entebbe, Uganda with immediate effect, ” the statement reads in part.
Jambojet assured its customers that plans are underway to ensure all booked passengers get accommodation and alternative flights.
The airline, however, noted that flights to local destinations including Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa, Kisumu and Eldoret will not be affected.
