Kuwait's Jazeera launches extra Saudi flights

Airline CEO says demand from business travellers prompts move on Jeddah route.

Kuwait's Jazeera Airways on Thursday announced that it was adding two additional weekly flights to its Jeddah route.

From September 16, passengers can fly Jazeera to Saudi Arabia's second city five days a week, in addition to the airline's existing twice-weekly service to the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

Jazeera Airways' CEO, Stefan Pichler said: "The Kuwait-Jeddah non-stop route has proven to be one of the most popular in our network, and we have added additional flights in response to the overwhelming demand of our guests.

"The extra flights will cater to the growing number of business travellers between Kuwait and Jeddah."

Jazeera Airways currently operates a fleet of 10 Airbus A320s and flies to destinations in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, Iran, and the Indian subcontinent.
