Jazeera Air­ways, a low-cost car­rier based in Kuwait, re­cently cel­e­brated a key mile­stone that saw roughly 2 mil­lion pas­sen­gers pass­ing through its ded­i­cated ter­mi­nal over the first year of its op­er­a­tion.

Launched back in May 2018, Ter­mi­nal 5 fea­tures 11 check-in coun­ters, six self-checkin kiosks, as well as ded­i­cated pass­port and se­cu­rity con­trol check­points. Ad­di­tion­ally on site is an ar­ray of duty-free shops and restau­rants, as well as the car­rier’s sig­na­ture Pearl Lounge.

The mile­stone was cel­e­brated at a re­cent event at­tended by of­fi­cials from Kuwait’s Direc­torate of Civil Avi­a­tion, Min­istry of In­te­rior, Kuwait Cus­toms, KAFCO, and Na­tional Avi­a­tion Ser­vices. Mem­bers of Kuwait Air­ways’ own lead­er­ship and other lo­cal ser­vice providers and part­ners were also in at­ten­dance.

“In May last year, the in­au­gu­ra­tion of T5 emerged as sig­nif­i­cant game-changer for our op­er­a­tions and cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence. T5 en­abled us to serve our grow­ing num­ber of pas­sen­gers, which saw record growth of 46.4% in 2018 as our air­line con­tin­ued to ex­pand its op­er­a­tions in the Mid­dle East, Europe and In­dian sub­con­ti­nent,” com­mented Mar­wan Boodai, Jazeera Air­ways chair­man.

“As we move for­ward, we are in­vest­ing in ex­pan­sion plans to con­tinue bet­ter serve our cus­tomers. We are plan­ning a new route to London Gatwick, in ad­di­tion to new routes in In­dia, Pak­istan, Bangladesh and the Gulf. The ex­pan­sion will be sup­ported with the delivery of three new A320­neo air­craft this year.”
