Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

Wataniya Air­ways, the lat­est Kuwaiti avi­a­tion com­pany, launched its first sched­uled flights from Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port to Tbil­isi, the cap­i­tal of Ge­or­gia, with three flights to and from Kuwait per week. Wataniya Air­ways cel­e­brated the event in the Ge­or­gian cap­i­tal Tbil­isi, with an event at­tended by His Ex­cel­lency Mubarak Mo­hammed AlSa­he­jan, the Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to Ge­or­gia, and His Ex­cel­lency Roland Beridze, the Ge­or­gian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait, as well as mem­bers of the Wataniya Air­ways board and top ex­ec­u­tive management of the com­pany. The event was cov­ered by dif­fer­ent lo­cal me­dia out­lets.

On this oc­ca­sion Riyad Al-Saeed, Vice Chair­man of Wataniya Air­ways, said that the launch of the first flight with the be­gin­ning of the sum­mer sea­son is con­sid­ered an ini­ti­a­tion of the com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions of this air­line car­rier af­ter a long stop­page. It is also con­sid­ered an im­por­tant stage in the his­tory of avi­a­tion in Kuwait, in line with the de­sire of the po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship to de­velop the lo­cal avi­a­tion sec­tor to keep pace with the rapid growth of the Kuwaiti mar­ket.

Al-Saeed added that Wataniya Air­ways is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a new stage in all ad­min­is­tra­tive and tech­ni­cal as­pects, aim­ing to pro­vide dis­tinc­tive ser­vices in a non-con­ven­tional style to all Kuwaiti ci­ti­zens and ex­pa­tri­ates of dif­fer­ent seg­ments against com­pet­i­tive prices. He con­tin­ued that there are three direct flights to and from Kuwait to Tb­lisi on Mon­days, Tues­days and Fri­days on­board an Air­bus A320, which con­sists of 155 seats, in­clud­ing 12 in busi­ness class.

Al-Saeed as­serted that the management of Wataniya Air­ways is keen to pro­vide a unique travel ex­pe­ri­ence af­ter its come­back to the lo­cal mar­ket. He noted that new flights are to be launched to Baku, Azer­bai­jan and Sara­jevo, Bos­nia in the com­ing week.

These des­ti­na­tions are highly sought af­ter by pas­sen­gers in Kuwait. At the end of his state­ment, Al-Saeed ex­pressed his thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the govern­ment and civil avi­a­tion author­i­ties of Ge­or­gia for their sup­port in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the op­er­a­tion of Wataniya Air­ways flights. As a re­sult, tourism and trade, pro­moted be­tween the two coun­tries, will flour­ish. Lana Al-Rasheed, man­ager of Pub­lic Re­la­tions and Me­dia at Wataniya Air­ways em­pha­sized that, launch­ing the first flight to Tbil­isi, Ge­or­gia, sit­u­ated at the heart of Cau­ca­sus Moun­tains, meets the am­bi­tions of travel lovers and pro­vides direct flights to the de­sired des­ti­na­tions.

She added that cities of Ge­or­gia and other coun­tries which Wataniya Air­ways are now fly­ing to were missed, as direct flights were not avail­able from Kuwait. “Wataniya Air­ways is keen to meet the trav­el­ers’ needs so as to fa­cil­i­tate cross­ing these dis­tances and to en­joy lux­u­ri­ous trav­els on Wataniya Air­ways.” AlRasheed noted that Wataniya Air­ways aim at to be the most sought by pas­sen­gers. “We aim to make them en­joy all trav­els. Se­lect­ing our planes and con­sid­er­ing the crew as friends with the pas­sen­ger is our ob­jec­tive.”

The flight to Tb­lisi was an ex­clu­sive event. There was an on­board per­for­mance of a Kuwaiti tra­di­tional music band dur­ing the trip, and var­i­ous gifts were dis­trib­uted. The flight was at­tended by a group of dif­fer­ent me­dia out­lets from Kuwait as well as a group of dig­ni­taries of var­i­ous so­cial net­work­ing sites amid an at­mos­phere of joy and hap­pi­ness. The event in­cluded a draw for two free tick­ets to the guests on­board the flight.
