Tough travel restrictions in Rwanda and Uganda have seen demand for air travel drop, according to JamboJet managing director Ndegwa Karanja speaking to Business Daily.
The airline chief said that with the current stringent Covid-19 travel regulations in the two East African nations, the carrier may not resume flights in those destinations soon as demand for air travel has also dropped.
“We may not want to go in markets full of travel restrictions such as Entebbe and Rwanda any time soon. The two nations are still implementing tough Covid-19 travel restrictions,” said the airline’s Chief.
JamboJet suspended all its scheduled flights to and from Kigali, Rwanda and Entebbe, Uganda, last year following a decline in the number of international travellers, caused by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
