Jazeera Airways launches flights to London from Kuwait

Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Jazeera Airways, Kuwait's leading low-cost airline, operating regionally and internationally, today announced it will start flying to London on October 27, 2019, serving the British capital in new A320neo aircraft with daily flights.

This will be the first new service to the UK from Kuwait in 55 years. Landing at London Gatwick Airport South Terminal where access to the Gatwick Express train connects passengers directly to central London, the airline has scheduled timings conveniently leaving early mornings from Kuwait and landing just in time for lunch in London, or mid-afternoon on Saturdays. Prices will start from KD 60 one-way in Economy Class, KD 125 in Premium Economy Class and KD 250 in Business Class.

Speaking of the milestone launch, Jazeera Airways Chairman, Marwan Boodai, said: “What better way to continue our expansion in 2019 than to announce London as a new destination of the year. This is a first for a Low-Cost Carrier in the Middle East to fly long-haul, using our new A320neo aircraft. We are very excited to be providing our passengers with one of the most popular destinations from Kuwait and the region and we expect high demand for the route.”

Commenting on the new service between Kuwait and London, His Excellency Michael Davenport MBE, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to the State of Kuwait, said: “I am delighted to see Jazeera Airways launching this new service between Kuwait and London Gatwick, made possible by the new Air Services Agreement signed last year. It is really encouraging, as we mark the 120th Anniversary of the Kuwaiti-British Treaty of Friendship, to see more Kuwaitis visiting Britain and studying at British universities than ever before.”

Stephen King, Gatwick’s Head of Airline Relations, added: “This important new route to Kuwait further strengthens Gatwick’s network of connections to the Middle East. It provides exciting new opportunities for Britain to do business with a country at the forefront of the oil, financial services and technology industries. It’s fantastic news that Jazeera Airways has joined Gatwick’s extensive roster of long-haul airlines and we’re really looking forward to welcoming them to the airport in October.”

Jazeera Airways will serve London with a cabin configuration in three classes: Business Class, a new Premium Economy Class and Economy Class. The Business Class offers passengers a 33-inch seat pitch, 50 kilograms in baggage allowance, priority boarding and a complementary inflight meal. The Premium Economy Class offers passengers a 31-inch seat pitch, while Economy Class offers a 29/30-inch seat pitch. Hot meals will be provided for the first time on Jazeera flights – complimentary in Business Class and Premium Economy, and from the Jazeera Café menu for Economy passengers.



The Jazeera Terminal T5 provides passengers with the ease and comfort of traveling with 12 check-in counters, eight self-check-in kiosks, dedicated passport and security control procedures, duty free shops and restaurants, as well as free WiFi internet service available for passengers when boarding at the T5 gates. T5 also has a dedicated number at 176 and Help Team on-ground to respond to passengers’ queries and guide them through the Terminal.
