Wataniya Airways and Jeppesen sign service agreement

Posted 19 July 2017 · Add Comment

Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, has agreed to a service contract with Kuwait's Wataniya Airways.

As the airline is working to begin air service in the near future, Jeppesen has agreed to provide multiple services to assist the airline with several operations. Wataniya Airways will receive paper charts for navigation and International Trip Planning services from Jeppesen in the near term. 

After air service is established, the airline also will use Jeppesen electronic flight bag (EFB) services to increase operational efficiency. For the short term at the point of beginning operations, Wataniya Airways also will use Jeppesen trip planning and flight dispatch services.

“As one of three national carriers for the State of Kuwait, we need trusted charts and planning solutions that will help us initiate air service, and our agreement with Jeppesen certainly will meet this need,” said Lana Alresheed, manager of PR and Media, Wataniya Airways. “We are pleased to team with Jeppesen to integrate with their expert teams to provide these services, to continue our growth in the Middle East region and beyond, in the coming years.”  

Jeppesen’s renowned International Trip Planning organisation will provide support for ad-hoc flights and additional operational areas. Jeppesen paper charts will provide essential navigation information, updated through a regular revision process, to help the airline initiate its regional air service in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe.

“Wataniya Airways is seeking to become a leader in regional air service and we will provide essential solutions to help establish their operations,” said Ola Lindblad, director, Jeppesen Client Management, Middle East, Africa, Russia & Central Asia. “They have an aggressive business plan and we will continue to work with their evolving needs to increase operational efficiency, moving forward.”
