Jazeera launches Kuwait-Isfahan flights
Iran, July 7, 2009
Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s low-cost carrier, has launched a new route, operating non-stop three times a week between Kuwait and Isfahan, Iran’s ancient capital, with flights every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
The launch brings the total number of routes the airline flies to in Iran, to four.
“Iran has proven to be a very important market for us, and we have witnessed significant uptake and continually increasing passenger numbers to all of our Iran destinations - including the country’s capital, Tehran; Shiraz, the city of gardens; and the holy city of Mashhad,” said Stefan Pichler, Jazeera Airways CEO.
“We are expecting Isfahan to be a hugely popular destination, as we continue to give the region’s passengers even more freedom to fly - to some of the most exciting destinations in and around the Middle East.”
The launch of the new Isfahan destination comes as part of Jazeera’s recent network expansion and forms a major step along Jazeera’ growth plan, to fly to all major cities across the region.
The airline has welcomed an additional five destinations this summer to a number of desirable holiday spots including the ancient Syrian city of Aleppo; the picturesque Mediterranean resort of Larnaca in Cyprus; the historic Mediterranean hilltop resort of Antalya, Turkey; and the Red Sea Riviera resort of Marsa Alam. – TradeArabia News Service
