Jazeera Airways launches flights to London Gatwick

Posted 6 August 2019 · Add Comment

Jazeera Airways will start flying to London on October 27, 2019, serving the British capital in new A320neo aircraft with daily flights.

 

This will be the first new service to the UK from Kuwait in 55 years. Landing at London Gatwick Airport South Terminal where access to the Gatwick Express train connects passengers directly to central London, the airline has scheduled timings conveniently leaving early mornings from Kuwait and landing just in time for lunch in London, or mid-afternoon on Saturdays. Prices will start from KD 60 one-way in Economy Class, KD 125 in Premium Economy Class and KD 250 in Business Class.

Jazeera Airways chairman, Marwan Boodai, said: “What better way to continue our expansion in 2019 than to announce London as a new destination of the year. This is a first for a Low-Cost Carrier in the Middle East to fly long-haul, using our new A320neo aircraft. We are very excited to be providing our passengers with one of the most popular destinations from Kuwait and the region and we expect high demand for the route.”

Michael Davenport MBE, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to the State of Kuwait, added: “I am delighted to see Jazeera Airways launching this new service between Kuwait and London Gatwick, made possible by the new Air Services Agreement signed last year. It is really encouraging, as we mark the 120th Anniversary of the Kuwaiti-British Treaty of Friendship, to see more Kuwaitis visiting Britain and studying at British universities than ever before.”
