Jambojet, a regional low-cost airline, and Cellulant, a Pan-African payments company, have teamed up to give customers over 600 discount vouchers worth Kes 3,000 apiece.
Customers who sign up for Jambojet Rewards, the airline’s reward program, will be eligible for the coupons.
Jambojet has flown over 5 million people since its launch in 2014, and in April it established Jambojet Rewards, a reward program in which clients earn points for every flight on Jambojet. Over 10,000 people have signed up for the loyalty program since its inception, with the majority paying with mobile money.
“Over 70% of our customers book their tickets online and pay for their tickets using mobile money. This partnership with Cellulant is another way to offer value to our loyal customers, some of whom fly up to 100 times a year. Our customers have a chance of getting a Kes 3,000 voucher to pay for part of their ticket when making a future booking, ” said Mr Karanja Ndegwa, Jambojet Managing Director & CEO.
To stand a chance to win the Kes 3,000 discount voucher, one must have signed up for Jambojet Rewards online through https://bit.ly/JMRewardsSignUp. Jambojet and Cellulant will randomly select the winners and reward up to 80 people weekly. The campaign will run for 8 weeks and will reward 660 customers.
Cellulant offers a digital payments platform – Tingg – a one-stop payment gateway that enables African businesses to make and receive payments in many currencies and payment methods. Businesses can use the platform to provide their customers with a seamless payment experience.
“We’re happy to further our long-standing partnership with Jambojet by enabling them to offer a seamless payment experience to their frequent customers,” remarked Akshay Grover, Group CEO at Cellulant. “In today’s digital world, as consumers become increasingly digital-first, businesses that offer frictionless digital payment experiences gain a competitive advantage. This partnership reinforces our commitment to enabling businesses to thrive, and we do so by providing relevant and alternative payment methods.”
Tingg by Cellulant, the payment platform that powers the Jambojet Rewards program, is providing Kshs 2,000,000 for discount coupons in order to strengthen digital payment methods and encourage local travel.
Tingg by Cellulant manages payments for Jambojet, which operates flights from Nairobi to Mombasa, Malindi, Lamu, Diani, Kisumu, Eldoret, and Goma in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. From Mombasa, the airline also offers direct flights to Eldoret, Kisumu, and Lamu.
