Kuwait's Jazeera adds 61 flights to summer schedule

Kuwaiti’s Jazeera Airways is adding 61 flights to its summer schedule, the airline announced on Sunday.

The extra flights will increase frequency of routes servicing Jeddah, Dubai, Amman, Luxor, Assiut (Egypt), Sohag (Egypt), Al Najaf (Iraq) and Mashhad (Iran).

The Kuwait City-Jeddah route will be doubled from a daily to twice daily service between July 10-27 to support the busy Ramadan travel period.

There will be 19 extra flights to Iraq’s Mashhad, another holy Islamic city popular with pilgrims.

Six extra flights will serve Amman, while five have been added to the Dubai and Luxor routes and four to Assiut.

Sohag and Al Najaf will each see two more flights during summer.

Jazeera Airways is listed on the Kuwait Stock Exchange and last year carried 1.1m passengers.
