Jazeera Airways, the wings of freedom, announced that it will start flights to Queen of the Arabian Sea Cochin, its third destination in India, three times a week and commencing on Aug 30th. The new national airline of Kuwait, which began operations to India last July with direct flights to Mumbai and New Delhi, will fly to Cochin on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Jazeera Airways VP for Industry Affairs Bader Al Mershed said, ‘Cochin, Queen of the Arabian Sea, is an important addition to our tourist destinations. The city is rated in the top three tourist destinations by the World Travel & Tourism Council and featured in National Geographic Traveler’s ‘50 greatest places of a lifetime.’
He added, ‘The Cochin route is part of Jazeera Airways’ aggressive expansion after receiving two brand new aircraft from Airbus in June and July bringing the airline’s total number of aircraft to four new Airbus A320s with all leather seating.’
The launch of flights to Mashhad and Assiut earlier this month and the increase of flights to Damascus and Alexandria in addition to doubling flights to Dubai in the last two months were also part of this strategy.
With flights to Cochin, the 10-month old airline now flies to 13 destinations, eight of which were added in the last 6 months.
