Kuwait's Jazeera Airways, which was one of the first airlines in the Middle East to be plunged into lockdown, is set to resume operations on 1 August after experiencing one of the longest flight restrictions in the region.
The airline revealed its schedule for the six-month period starting from August 1, showing flights to 20 destinations, including the cities of Dubai, Riyadh, Beirut, Istanbul and Amman.
“We are all very pleased to be resuming our flights and serving our customers after a suspension of over four months at Kuwait International Airport,” said Jazeera Airways’ CEO, Rohit Ramachandran.
“During this period, we continued to operate by supporting repatriation and expatriation flights. Now we can welcome citizens and residents who want to travel out and back into Kuwait.
“We anticipate demand will be strong in August and our schedule focuses on the most desirable routes – whether people want to fly to visit the family or for medical, touristic and business purposes.’’
“We’ve implemented a range of health and safety measures in our terminal T5 and on-board our aircraft, to ensure the wellbeing of our passengers. Aircraft cabins are particularly safe environments with highly efficient air filters which remove 99.97% of airborne microbes.’’
