Kuwait Air­ways now flies di­rect to Bangkok, Rome, Manila and Paris

Two con­nect­ing flights turned into di­rect des­ti­na­tions

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

As part of its re­vised new sched­ule of timings, fre­quency in­creases and ever-in­creas­ing num­ber of des­ti­na­tions, Kuwait Air­ways, the na­tional car­rier of the State of Kuwait, has con­firmed that Bangkok, Rome, Paris and Manila are now non-stop des­ti­na­tions on its in­ter­na­tional net­work. The new sched­ule’s timings and in­creased fre­quen­cies, which came into force on 30 Oc­to­ber 2016, have been ap­plied across Kuwait Air­ways’ to­tal net­work of 36 des­ti­na­tions.

The new sched­ule is part of Kuwait Air­ways’ five-year trans­for­ma­tion strat­egy to over­haul its op­er­a­tions, com­mer­cial and ser­vice of­fer­ings to pas­sen­gers and travel part­ners. One of the first steps in this trans­for­ma­tion be­ing the adop­tion of a dy­namic new liv­ery - re­vealed last month. The new liv­ery was un­veiled at a cer­e­mony at Boe­ing’s fac­tory in Everett, near Seattle, USA, on the first of 10 soon-to-be-de­liv­ered Boe­ing 777-300ERs, with the first due to ar­rive in Kuwait in De­cem­ber 2016.

Com­ment­ing on why new di­rect routes have re­placed the pre­vi­ous one-stop con­nect­ing flights, Rash Al-Roumi, Chair­per­son and CEO of Kuwait Air­ways, said: “Bangkok, Paris, Manila and Rome rep­re­sent some of our most pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions and it was clear that a di­rect, non-stop route was the way for­ward, in order to of­fer our loyal pas­sen­gers a more con­ve­nient op­tion for reach­ing home, tak­ing a busi­ness trip or go­ing on hol­i­day.”

“In con­junc­tion with the new sched­ule’s bet­ter timings and in­creased fre­quen­cies, Kuwait Air­ways is con­fi­dent that we are grow­ing our share of the lo­cal and regional mar­ket - with pas­sen­ger num­bers up 40 per cent, over the last two years,” Roumi added.
