Jumia Travels has launched cruise travel to encourage more Nigerians to go on cruise voyages. The launch is also aimed at expanding the company’s offerings to its customers.
This was disclosed by its Managing Director, Miss Omolara Adagunodo, in a statement. Adagunodo said Jumia Travel made the foray into the cruise business to meet the immense demands by Nigerians for cruise travel and to expand its footprint to become a robust travel agency offering hotel, flights, airport pickups, travel insurance and cruise travel.
“We do not want to be known strictly for hotel and flight business. We want to evolve into an online travel agency that offers every travel related service you can think of.
“This is why we are going full throttle into cruise travel and most importantly our customers asked for it and this is our response,” she said.
Adagunodo, further stated that since the platform started selling cruises, the response has been overwhelming adding that a substantial number of Nigerians have bought cruises to various destinations around the world.
