The service will mark Jazeera's fifth destination in Saudi Arabia following Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah and Taif
Kuwaiti low-cost carrier Jazeera Airways will begin services to Dammam in Saudi Arabia on December 19, flying to the Eastern Capital’s province three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The service will mark Jazeera’s fifth destination in Saudi Arabia following Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah and Taif.
Using Jazeera, Dammam’s many expatriate residents will also be able to connect to flights to Hyderabad, Alexandria, Amman, Mumbai, Cochin and Katmandu.
“We are very glad to be connecting our customers to the sixth largest city of Saudi Arabia with direct and connecting flights at value fares,” said Jazeera Airways CEO Rohit Ramachandran. “With its status as the capital of the Eastern Province and a major administrative centre for the Saudi oil industry, Dammam connects our customers to the larger Easter Province where around 15 percent of the kingdom’s population live.”
“I take this opportunity to thank local authorities for supporting the expansion of Jazeera Airways to serve the growing number of passengers through the King Fahd International Airport with a new and reliable service,” he added.
Jazeera Airways’ flights from Kuwait to Dammam depart at 12:35 pm local time on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and takes off on its return flight from Dammam at 14:25 local time.
Fares begin at KD 38 ($125) for a one-way flight from Kuwait on economy class and KD 64 ($210) for a return flight from Kuwait on the same class.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
