Jazeera Airways was this week named the “Aviation Company of the Year 2019” by the Arabian Business Kuwait Awards.


Judged by a panel of editors and reporters, the airline was recognized and awarded for its operational success, outstanding performance and expansions during the year, in addition to the significant increase in number of passengers which saw a record growth of 46.4% by end of last year.

Jazeera Airways CEO, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “We are honoured to receive such an industry title in recognition of our endeavours and achievements in 2018 and we have our customers to thank for their continued trust in our airline.

“2018 was a transformational year for Jazeera Airways as we continued to expand our network and enhance our services. We inaugurated the Jazeera Terminal (T5), took delivery of the first A320neo to be operated in the Middle East and continued to invest in innovative services that add value to our customers’ experience, such as our Jazeera Screens in-flight entertainment. On top of that we were able to return KD7 million to our shareholders.”

“We have a strong team to thank for these achievements as they continue to deliver excellence in every aspect of our business in one of the most competitive industries in the region and the world. 2019 is going to be another year of strong development, including new routes such as London Gatwick and the expansion of our fleet from 9 to 13 aircraft. We’ve made a fantastic start with Q1 2019 profits of KD1.5 million.”
