Local airlines operator – Jambojet and Little cab have signed a deal that will see customers utilizing both services get discounted taxi rates in a promotion expected to last for the next three months. Jambojet has some of the most cost friendly airline ticket rates locally and currently operates on several routes across the region. While Little cab has so far proved a worthy competitor since it was unveiled locally to the likes of Uber and Bolt.
Little cab riders will get a Ksh150 discount on cab rides in any of the three cities it currently offers services – Nairobi, Mombasa and of course Kisumu. And while speaking on the development, Jambojet’s CEO, Mr. Allan Kilavuka confirmed the deal and added that it aimed to enrich customers travel experience, by convenience and affordability.
The partnership is also expected to benefit Little Cab by expanding its market reach while at the same time growing its customer base and cut out on competition. Taxy hailing apps have become popular in Kenya especially considering they utilize mobile technology to offer the most affordable and convenient rides across major cities.
Jambojet operates a no-frills model where passengers enjoy lower fares but have to pay for extras such as food, baggage as well as seat choices and legroom. To keep the cost of a seat as low as possible, the airline focuses on getting you from point A to point B for as cheaply as possible. The airline is currently flying to Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Malindi, Ukunda, and Entebbe.
Little cab is running the campaign on Jambojet’s De Havilland Dash 8 Q400 aircraft, to have a wider reach, with hopes that the brand will influence their transport decisions when they alight the airline.
