Jazeera Airways today announced its schedule for the six-month period starting from August 1, 2020, revealing flights to 20 destinations, including high-demand cities of Dubai, Riyadh, Beirut, Istanbul and Amman.

Jazeera Airways Chief Executive Officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “We are all very pleased to be resuming our flights and serving our customers after a suspension of over four months at Kuwait International Airport. During this period, we continued to operate by supporting repatriation and expatriation flights. Now we can welcome citizens and residents who want to travel out and back into Kuwait. We anticipate demand will be strong in August and our schedule focuses on the most desirable routes – whether people want to fly to visit the family or for medical, touristic and business purposes.’’

“We’ve implemented a range of health and safety measures in our terminal T5 and on-board our aircraft, to ensure the well-being of our passengers. Aircraft cabins are particularly safe environments with highly efficient air filters which remove 99.97% of airborne microbes.’’

Safe check-in procedures

Passengers must check-in online and download their boarding pass on the Jazeera App or print it from the website.

Check-in is also available up to 48 hours prior to the flight departure at the T5 Car Park, where passengers can drop their baggage and collect their boarding pass. When arriving at T5, passengers can proceed directly to immigration.

Aircraft and terminal disinfection

The airline performs an anti-viral disinfection program in which it sprays the cabins after each flight, as well as fumigates them using anti-viral high pressure disinfection sprays on seats and throughout the cabin. Disinfectant chemicals used are internationally approved and safe for all passengers. The aircraft’s air filters in on-board filtration systems are also replaced frequently, removing dust, allergens, bacteria, viruses and other irritating particles. Constant airflow ensures that the cabin air is refreshed every 90 minutes throughout the flight.
