Jubba Airways is an airline with its headquarters in Mogadishu, Somalia.
The carrier was founded in 1998 by two Calgary-based Somali entrepreneurs, Said Nur Qailie and Abdi Hashi Dalel.
On May 1998, a month after the company had been established, the airline embarked on its first voyage. This represented the first direct flight from Sharjah to Mogadishu since the state-owned Somali Airlines discontinued operations in 1991.
Jubba Airways is based in Mogadishu, the nation's capital. It has branches in other cities in Somalia as well as in Djibouti, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
The airline largely fills the niche vacated by the defunct Somali Airlines, and serves destinations in Somalia including Mogadishu, Hargeisa, Bosaso and Galkayo. Flights to Djibouti, the UAE (Dubai), and for Hajj pilgrims to Jeddah are also important routes for the airline. In addition, the airline offers cargo flights.
Jubba Airways maintains its own aircraft, serviced by engineers that are a part of a team of 300 trained employees.
The carrier plans to lease more planes and open new branches so as to offer more destinations to its growing number of passengers.
