Jazeera Airways inaugurated its latest non-stop route between Kuwait and Lahore, Pakistan, with a celebration at Kuwait International Airport yesterday evening. This recent addition to the network – the airline’s first destination in Pakistan – marks Jazeera’s successful expansion across the region.
During a cake-cutting ceremony to mark the launch of the new route, the airline’s CEO Stefan Pichler and Mr. Essam Al-Zamel, Operations Director, Kuwait International Airport, delivered a welcoming speech to the Kuwaiti media and scheduled passengers on this route.
In honour of the occasion, the Jazeera Airways team distributed Pakistani sweets and a ‘first flight’ certificate to all passengers joining the inaugural flight. Pichler said during the inauguration: “In keeping with Jazeera Airways’ vision to expand our regional network, we are very pleased to inaugurate our latest non-stop route to Lahore. Our convenient schedules and frequent flights combined with great low fare travel will enable those working away from home in Kuwait or the Middle East to travel home and visit family and friends with greater ease.”
Guests can fly three times a week from Kuwait to the capital city known as the ‘cultural heart of Pakistan’ on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Jazeera Airways currently operates a fleet of 11 Airbus A320s. Each aircraft is fitted with the airline’s signature leather seating, while the Jazeera Business Class cabin offers business travellers a little extra convenience including easy booking, special check-in counters, 40 kilograms baggage allowance, access to airport lounges and exclusive in-flight service and entertainment.
The airline flies to destinations in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan.
