Jambojet (JM, Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta) has signed a lease agreement with the Ilyushin Finance Co. for two Dash 8-400s. The aircraft are sourced directly from the Russian lessor's Bombardier Aerospace (BBA, Montréal Trudeau) order book. The first is due for delivery in May 2017 with the other due later in the year.

The budget unit of Kenya Airways specializes in scheduled passenger flights throughout Kenya with service connecting Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta with each of Eldoret, Kisumu, Lamu, Malindi, Mombasa, and Ukunda. Its fleet currently consists of two B737-300s and three Q400s (two of which are wet-leased from DAC East Africa (Nairobi Wilson)).

Prior to securing its own Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) in November last year, Jambojet operated as a division of Kenya Airways (KQ, Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta) using its AOC.
