Wataniya Airways unveils special one-day offer
Kuwait , January 24, 2010
Wataniya Airways, Kuwait’s premium service airline, is offering 11,000 Premium Economy return tickets for 11KD ($38.3) for the whole of today (January 25) as part of its super one-day offer to mark its first anniversary celebrations.
The airline presently flies to Dubai, Bahrain, Cairo, Beirut, Amman, Damascus, Jeddah, and Sharm El Sheikh from the Sheikh Saad Terminal, becoming the first and only airline in Kuwait to operate from an exclusive terminal.
Announcing this at a special ceremony held in the company headquarters, Wataniya Airways chairman and managing director Abdulsalam AlBahar, said, 'We want everyone to join us in our celebrations, and as we’ve succeeded to make flying an enjoyable experience for the past year, we are extending a special offer to allow as many people as possible to enjoy it.'
Wataniya is celebrating its first year of operations with many surprises and offers starting today with what the airline is calling its “thank you gift” to Kuwait for the support we’ve received in our successful first year.
'Under the one-day offer the First Class guests who book with us today will get one free first class ticket as a gift,' said Al Bahar at the glittering ceremony which was attended by George Cooper, the airline’s CEO and the staff members.
AlBahar said Wataniya Airways flew more than a quarter of a million guests in its first year to and from its own Sheikh Saad Terminal to its network of 8 destinations across the Middle East.
“Our team managed to do remarkable things in a brief period, gaining our guests trust and satisfaction by providing an extraordinary experience, launching flights to eight different destinations with more to be announced soon, and becoming one of the few airlines in the world to launch a frequent flyer program in its first year of operation in our own Wataniya Diwan,” he said.
“This would have not been possible without the tremendous support we got from our guests and the community in Kuwait and we thank them for that,” he added.
Wataniya Airways now has a fleet of four custom fitted A320 aircraft and is set to receive three more aircraft in 2010, bringing its total fleet size to seven aircraft.
Cooper said, 'A year ago we set out to give our guests the kind of flying experience that we knew they wanted and deserved. From the start our goal has been to make flying with Wataniya Airways an experience that delights from terminal to terminal.'
'We have invested in the very best of aircraft and staff to help us achieve that goal and it is entirely due to the dedication of our team at Wataniya Airways that we mark this anniversary as the region’s full premium service airline,' he noted.
'We want to thank all our guests for their custom and support in the past year – their input and feedback has been consistently helpful in our quest to deliver excellence,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
