WILLEM HONDIUS, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO).
Willem said in the beginning that JamboJet (KQA) the intended budget carrier, would be looking to acquire additional aircraft ahead of the launch of its maiden international flights. The Dutchman told "Shipping & Logistics" magazine that the low cost carrier (LCC) was looking at either acquiring new or 2nd-hand aircraft. Though at that time he did not specify their type, Hondius had in the past mentioned using 737-700s to replace its 737-300 fleet.

KARANJA NDEGWA, CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER (CFO).

The Kenya Airways (KEN) subsidiary initially operated 3 737-300s and 2 Bombardier (BMB) Dash 8-400s (leased from (DAC) East Africa ((IATA) Code: JX, based at Nairobi Wilson) on flights from Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta to Eldoret, Kisumu, Lamu, Malindi, Mombasa, and Ukunda locally.

According to Willem, while JamboJet (KQA) posted a modest KES57 million (USD547,000) profit for the 1st half of its 2015/2016 Financial Year, an increasingly tight domestic market meant (KQA) had decided to turn its attention abroad. As such, JamboJet plans to serve Entebbe/Kampala, Mogadishu, Juba, and Dar-es-Salaam initially before expanding further into East and Central Africa.

The exact date for the launch of international operations is unclear given that JamboJet's most recent application for international traffic rights was deferred by the Kenyan Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).
