Jazeera Airways to make Heathrow-Kuwait debut

The first low cost carrier to serve the Gulf from Heathrow is to start flights next week.

Jazeera Airways is introducing flights to Kuwait on June 18.

The first budget carrier from the region to operate direct flights from the London hub is starting with weekly Friday departures.

Frequency is planned to rise as travel restrictions ease.

Economy class fares start at £802 return.

The privately-owned carrier azeera Airways will operate an Airbus A320neo on the route.

Chief executive Rohit Ramachandran said: “Our new service to Heathrow airport enables Jazeera Airways to cater to popular demand for flights to and from London, including demand from business travellers, Kuwaiti students and the large segment of accustomed tourists who we believe are more than eager to return to London this summer, many of whom own homes in the area.

“As the vaccinations against the Covid-19 virus roll out in Kuwait and across the world, countries are opening their borders for a gradual return of summer traffic.

“Jazeera Airways’ pilots and cabin crew have already been fully vaccinated, and we continue to mandate strict safety measures in all our facilities. Our customers can rest assured that they will be travelling safely to and from London with us.”
