Jambojet Wins In Airlines Ranking In Africa



Kenyan low cost carrier Jambojet has been ranked as the airline with the youngest fleet in Africa.

In a report by global aviation intelligence provider ch-aviation, Jambojet’s average aircraft age is 4.3 years compared to the continent’s average of 16 years, the oldest globally.


“This recognition is yet another validation of our commitment to keeping customer safety at the core of our business. We remain committed to matching our words with action which is why we made a business decision to only acquire brand new aircrafts,” said Allan Kilavuka the CEO of Jambojet.

Norwegian Air Sweden tops the list as the commercial carrier with the youngest fleet of aircraft on a global scale.

Our data clearly shows that Asian airlines continue to see tremendous growth, especially the low-cost carriers. This coupled with good access to capital for new aircraft leads to the youngest fleets being in this part of the world” said Thomas Jaeger, ch-aviation CEO.

The analysis by CHUR – Swiss airline intelligence provider ch-aviation, looked at the youngest fleets for larger airlines separately, because fleet renewal for those airlines is more complex and would require more capital than for small start-ups.

The average aircraft flying the globe is 12 years old, shows the report that analysed more than 30,000 active commercial passenger and cargo aircrafts.
