Jazeera Airways has today announced that it will launch a new service to London Heathrow airport on Friday, June 18, 2021, making the airline the first LCC in the Middle East to operate direct flights to the airport.
The airline has scheduled direct flights between Kuwait and London Heathrow every Friday and plans to increase its frequency as travel restrictions ease.
Commenting on the new service, Jazeera chief executive officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “The new service to Heathrow Airport enables Jazeera to cater to popular demand for flights to London, including demand from business travellers, Kuwaiti students and the large segment of accustomed tourists who we believe are more than eager to return to London this summer, while many of whom own homes in the area.
“As the vaccinations against the Covid-19 virus roll out in Kuwait and across the world, countries are opening their borders for a gradual return of summer traffic.
“Jazeera pilots and cabin crew have already been fully vaccinated, and we continue to mandate strict safety measures in all our facilities.
“Our customers can rest assured that they will be travelling safely to London with us.”
