Jazeera Airways, the Middle East-based low cost carrier (LCC), has announced that it will launch a new service from London Heathrow to Kuwait on Friday 18 June, 2021,

    The airline claims that this will make it the first LCC from the region to operate direct flights from the airport.

    The airline has scheduled direct flights between London Heathrow and Kuwait every Friday and plans to increase their frequency as travel restrictions ease. Economy Class fares start from £802 return.

    Jazeera Airways’ chief executive officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “Our new service to Heathrow Airport enables Jazeera Airways to cater to popular demand for flights to and from 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, 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 Airways’ 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 and from London with us.”

    On board, passengers can choose from Premium seats (Rows 1-3) with a 33-inch seat pitch, 30kgs baggage allowance and complimentary seat selection. Or select Preferred Seats with 31-inch seat pitch (Rows 4-10) or XL/Extra Legroom Seats (Rows 11-12) with 36 inch seat pitch.
