Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways sets course for Kochi, Ahmedabad

Expansion continues with two new direct routes on Jan 17,18


KUWAIT: Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s leading low-cost airline, operating regionally and internationally, is proud to announce its plans for further expansion into India. Following a successful launch in Hyderabad in November, Jazeera Airways will now fly to Ahmedabad and Kochi starting January 17th and 18th respectively. With the increase in operations to India, the award winning carrier is now able to support the travel needs of over 920,000 Indians residing in Kuwait.

Rohit Ramachandran, CEO of Jazeera Airways said, “This is a major strategic move for us to extend our network into India and provide greater choice and value for the Indian community in Kuwait and broader GCC. We have been delighted with how well our new operations to Hyderabad, Kochi and Ahmedabad have been received both in India and the wider Middle East region. The decision to invest further in India comes from the rising demand of Indian expats visiting their friends and families, as well as the large interest of Kuwaiti travelers in exploring new destinations for tourism and medical visits.”

Located in western India, Gujarat’s major city, Ahmedabad has emerged as an important economic and industrial hub in India. The city was selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed under Government of India’s flagship Smart Cities Mission and in July 2017, the Historic City of Ahmedabad or Old Ahmedabad, was declared as India’s first UNESCO World Heritage City.

Known as the center of the world for spice trade, Kochi is a major port city on the south-west coast and district in Kerala. The state is renowned for tourism ranging from the famous Backwaters – a chain of lagoons, rivers and canals; to the archaeological landmarks of museums, ancient palaces and forts. More importantly, Kerala has been fast developing into a world-class healthcare center and is known as the hub of Ayurveda.

Jazeera Airways will operate three flights on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays to and from Ahmedabad starting January 17th departing 00.05am from Kuwait arriving 06.00am, ensuring a quick and efficient journey.
