The first new service in 55 years between the UK and Kuwait is set for take-off from 27 October with Kuwaiti low-cost carrier (LCC) Jazeera Airways planning a daily service to Gatwick using a new Airbus A320neo.
In addition to serving Kuwait, flights will provide onward connectivity to Dubai, Bahrain, Doha and New Delhi via the Jazeera owned and operated Terminal 5 at Kuwait Airport.
Jazeera Airways chairman Marwan Boodai said: “Jazeera Airways has been building a great reputation in the Middle East in the low-cost airline sector, offering a strong alternative to the legacy airlines.
“We are looking forward to serving the UK market and extending consumer choice to Kuwait and the Gulf with our value proposition. This is a first for an LCC in the Middle East to fly long-haul, using the A320neo aircraft.”
Flights will be in a three-class configuration – Business, a new Premium Economy and Economy. Business Class will have a 33in seat pitch, priority boarding and a free inflight meal.
Premium Economy Class will offer passengers a 31in seat pitch with complimentary meal, while Economy Class offers a 29/30in seat pitch.
