Jazeera Airways to launch flights to Kochi, Ahmedabad

KUWAIT, November 29, 2017

Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s leading low cost airline, operating regionally and internationally, has announced 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 17 and 18 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, the airline said. 
 
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 Indian state of Gujarat, Ahmedabad has emerged as an important economic and industrial hub in India. The city was selected as one of the 100 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 centre of the world for spice trade, Kochi is a major port city in Kerala state. 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 health care centre 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 17 departing 00.05 am from Kuwait and arriving at 6.00 am, ensuring a quick and efficient journey. Kochi flights will operate four times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays departing at 12.45 pm from Kuwait and arriving at 20.10 pm in Kochi International Airport.
 
Passengers can enjoy a baggage allowance of 30kg for Economy class and 50kg per Business class passenger. – TradeArabia News Service
