Jazeera Airways said on Monday it is in the final stages of launching a dedicated gates facility at Kuwait International Airport.

The airline said in a statement that its investment in Kuwait Airport will lift the airport's gates capacity by 30 percent and will offer a "better, easier, and more streamlined boarding experience for customers".

The move comes as the carrier announced that its first quarter net profit fell 41.8 percent to KD2.1 million compared to the same period last year. Revenue at KD13.8 million fell by 6.1 percent.

Jazeera Airways Group chairman Marwan Boodai said: "Our outlook for the year remains unchanged and we expect to register bottom line growth driven by an exceptional summer season with the holy month of Ramadan falling earlier in the season.

"We look forward to another growth year reinforced by investments in our product, investments that will bolster the on-ground experience and clearly distinguish Jazeera Airways from competitors."

Boodai added: "We're excited to share with our customers that by June 1 flying with Jazeera Airways will be a streamlined experience from check-in to boarding to flight. With our new exclusive gates at Kuwait Airport, our customers will no longer be exposed to the airport's gates' congestion during peak times. This investment will significantly bolster our product offering."

Jazeera Airways last week announced it will begin serving Istanbul through the city's primary airport, Istanbul Atatürk Airport (IST), with five flights a week starting from May 2 instead of the Sabiha Gökçen International Airport.

The airline will also increase its service to Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central (DWC) to daily flights, starting from May 1.

Jazeera Airways operates a network comprising destinations such as Dubai, Bahrain, Beirut, Alexandria, Amman, Istanbul, Sharm El Sheikh, Assiut, Luxor, Mashhad, Sohag, Jeddah, Riyadh, Cairo and Al Najaf.
