Kuwait-based Wataniya Airways has launched daily scheduled flights to Beirut - Rafik Hariri International Airport in Lebanon.“We are delighted to have been able to select Beirut as the second destination for Wataniya Airways as our research has indicated this to be one of the most popular routes for travellers from Kuwait,” said Wataniya Airways Chairman, Abdulsalam Al Bahar. “Beirut is one of the most vibrant cities in the Middle East, offering a plethora of benefits from business to culture to popular entertainment.”
Wataniya Airways now flies from the Sheikh Saad terminal to Beirut and Dubai and this week also adds Cairo and Bahrain to its network.
George Cooper, CEO of Wataniya Airways said, “The recent delivery of another Airbus A320 aircraft has allowed us to strengthen our short haul network and provide our guests with more choice, convenient schedules and an enhanced travel experience.”
In Beirut, Wataniya Airways has appointed leading aviation, hospitality and travel advisor, Planet Group, as its General Sales Agent (GSA).
The airline’s new Airbus 320 aircraft features 122 seats which helps to ensure excellent leg room and comfort throughout its First Class and Premium Economy cabins.
