Posted 17 April 2020 · Add Comment

Jazeera Airways has announced that it ran its first all-cargo flight to and from Riyadh on April 15, 2020.

 

The all-cargo flight comes as part of the airline expanding its cargo capability during the Covid-19 shutdown of commercial passenger operations. Its entire fleet of 14 A320 aircraft are available for cargo-only flights with a capacity of 15 tons per aircraft, within a range of six hours flying time from Kuwait.

 

The airline has also secured approval from Kuwait’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation to carry cargo in the main cabin. Destination airports are subject to regulatory approvals from the host country.

 

Jazeera Airways chief executive officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “In this challenging business environment, we have adapted quickly to focus on cargo opportunities. We are pleased to be able to serve companies and institutions with our cargo services, ensuring vital food and other supplies are brought into Kuwait.’’
