This Kenyan Budget Airline Wants Travelers to Pay for Airfares in Installments
Jambojet, a budget airline in Kenya, said travelers can now pay their airfares in installments. This is an innovative marketing strategy the company has adopted to woo new customers, as it strives to recover from the pandemic-induced economic fallouts.
According to a press statement that was made available by Jambojet, the flexible airfare payment plan is called Jaza Pole Pole. With this plan, air travelers who buy Jambojet tickets 60 days before scheduled flights will only pay a minimum deposit of Sh2,670 ($24.29) upfront. The remaining balance would then be paid in three instalments.
“We understand the tough economic times and would want to ensure we cushion our customers, so that they are still able to travel when they want to. We are continuously innovating to provide our customers products and services that are tailor-made to offer flexible, convenient and affordable travel,” said Jambojet’s acting Managing Director, Karanja Ndegwa.
There are some Terms and Conditions
Note that every customer who is interested in this deal is required to first make the minimum deposit in order to solidify their interest. They will also be required to complete the installments 21 days prior to the scheduled flight date. And extra charges will be incurred for customers interested in changing their destinations, unless they are able to do so within two hours of booking and making initial deposits.
The deal is applicable to all the six destinations where Jambojet currently flies namely –Nairobi, Mombasa, Diani, Malindi, Kisumu, and Eldoret. It is scheduled to take off in April this year.
