Jazeera Airways About to Launch The First UK Connection in Half a Century

A new Jazeera Airways connection will be launched between UK and Kuwait using an Airbus A320

Jazeera Airways will start flying to Kuwait from London Gatwick on October 27th using a new A320neo aircraft – this being the first new service from the UK to Kuwait in 55 years. Besides serving Kuwait, the flights will also provide connection to Dubai, Bahrain and Doha in the Arabian Gulf, as well as to New Delhi in India.

Jazeera Airways chairman, Marwan Boodai stated: “Jazeera Airways has been building a great reputation in the Middle East in the low-cost airline sector, offering a strong alternative to the legacy airlines. We look forward to serving the UK market, and extending consumer choice to Kuwait and the Gulf, with our value proposition. This is a first for a low-cost carrier in the Middle East to fly long-haul, using the A320neo aircraft.”

Commenting on the new connection between Kuwait and the UK, ambassador to the state of Kuwait from the UK, Michael Davenport stated:

“I am delighted to see Jazeera Airways launching this new service between Kuwait and London Gatwick, made possible by the new Air Services Agreement signed last year. It is really encouraging, as we mark the 120th anniversary of the Kuwaiti-British Treaty of Friendship, to see more Kuwaitis visiting Britain and studying at British universities than ever before.”

Jazeera Airways will be using the new A320neo aircraft with daily flights and will be serving London with a cabin configuration in three classes: the business class, a new premium economy class and economy class.
