Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s leading low-cost airline, has announced that it served over 250,000 passengers for the first time in a month during August.
The airline said it served over 263,800 passengers during the summer month, up 22 per cent from August 2018, and operated 1,918 flights to 28 airports.
The carrier also reported an 85 per cent on-time performance with a high aircraft utilisation of 14.38 hours during the month, adding that during the first two weeks of September, on-time performance increased to 94 per cent.
Commenting on the airline’s performance, Jazeera Airways CEO, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “A high on-time performance is easily reached when an airline has a low utilisation of aircraft. However, at Jazeera Airways, we are proud to have delivered a strong punctuality while operating our aircraft at high efficiency levels. We have also added an additional gate at T5 to successfully manage our increased number in passengers.”
Jazeera Airways prepares to start flying to London on October 27, serving the British capital in new A320neo aircraft with daily flights. Landing at London Gatwick Airport South Terminal, bookings on the route opened on August 6 and have received great response to date.
The airline will also take delivery of three new Airbus A320neo aircraft in Q4 2019, bringing up the number of aircraft in its fleet to 13.
