Kuwait Air­ways net­work in­creases to 37 des­ti­na­tions

New routes demon­strate de­mand for ex­pan­sion

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Air­ways, the na­tional car­rier of the State of Kuwait, an­nounced yes­ter­day that two new routes have been added to its net­work of in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions, with the Mu­nich route hav­ing al­ready started (30th of Oc­to­ber) and Na­jaf, Iraq, to be added from 1st De­cem­ber 2016.

As part of the na­tional car­rier’s fiveyear trans­for­ma­tion plan, Kuwait Air­ways re­cently an­nounced that it had in­tro­duced a new “Win­ter Sched­ule”, which saw a re­vi­sion to its de­par­ture and ar­rival tim­ings across its net­work, in­creased fre­quen­cies on key routes, and is now see­ing the ad­di­tion of new des­ti­na­tions.

The ad­di­tion of Mu­nich has added to Kuwait Air­ways’ ex­ist­ing net­work into Ger­many, served through Frank­furt, and is now op­er­at­ing three flights per week to the Bavar­ian cap­i­tal. In­clud­ing Frank­furt, this brings the to­tal num­ber of flights to the EU’s most pop­u­lous and largest econ­omy to seven flights per week. Flights to Na­jaf, Iraq, will start from De­cem­ber 1 and offer a twice-weekly ser­vice, ev­ery Sun­day and Thurs­day.

“While we have stated that some of the im­me­di­ate pri­or­i­ties, within Kuwait Air­ways’ five-year trans­for­ma­tion plan, are to con­sol­i­date and en­hance our ex­ist­ing net­work; a prof­itable air­line must al­ways be in tune with the com­mer­cial de­mands of our pas­sen­gers,” said Rasha Al-Roumi, Chair­per­son and CEO, of Kuwait Air­ways.

“The ad­di­tion of these new routes are part of a growth strat­egy to­wards a prof­itable and sus­tain­able busi­ness model, as well as con­tribut­ing to po­si­tion­ing the na­tional car­rier as the pre­ferred air­line link­ing Kuwait to the world,” Roumi con­cluded.
