JAZEERA Airways will start flying to Aleppo, Syria, from March 26.
The airline will also introduce to Aleppo travellers fares starting at KD10. “That is the freedom Jazeera Airways will bring to Aleppo,” says Jazeera Airways chairman and CEO Marwan Boodai. The airline also announced that it has increased its Beirut flights from seven per week to 11 per week.
He says frequency on the Kuwait-Syria-Kuwait leg had been increased since “we started flying to Damascus four months ago. This rise in demand, stimulated by our low-fares formula encouraged us to add Aleppo to our network. Aleppo is a growing centre for business, industry and trade in the Levant.
“On March 26, we will bring to Aleppo travellers our easy booking methods, leather seats, and brand new planes that are looked after by global engineering services provider Lufthansa Technik.”
The new evening flights to Beirut will compliment Jazeera Airways’ daily morning flights to the city. The new schedule will also commence March 26 with fares starting at KD10.
Jazeera Airways is a brand new airline that took its first flight on October 30 from Kuwait to Dubai. It is the first private and non-subsidized airline in the Middle East. It recently announced it had flown more than 100,000 travellers in its first four months and currently operates two brand new Airbus A320s. It also has confirmed orders for six additional new Airbus A320s.
