Jazeera Airways will operate direct flights every Thursday and Saturday
Kuwait's low-cost airline Jazeera Airways will launch the airline’s first service to Sharjah in April this year, with a twice weekly return service.
The new service, launching on April 2, will be Kuwait airline’s third destination in the UAE, following on from its Al Ain service that was launched in December last year.
It will also provide competition for Air Arabia, which operates three daily flights between the cities.
Jazeera Airways will operate direct flights every Thursday and Saturday.
Jazeera Airways CEO, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “The flight not only connects our customers to a great tourist destination for families, but also connects Kuwaiti students to an airport closer to where they are studying as well as residents of Sharjah to our growing network of destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent.”
He added: “We thank Sharjah’s Department of Civil Aviation and Sharjah Airport Authority for enabling Jazeera Airways to launch this new service and support the growing demand for flights between both airports.”
