Jazeera Airways to launch Heathrow-Kuwait service

The route will begin as a weekly Friday service on 18 June, with the carrier planning to increase frequency as travel restrictions ease

Low-cost carrier Jazeera Airways is set to launch direct flights between Kuwait and London Heathrow from 18 June 2021.

Commenting on the news, Jazeera Airways CEO Rohit Ramachandran said: “As the vaccinations against the Covid-19 virus roll out in Kuwait and across the world, countries are opening their borders for a gradual return of summer traffic. Jazeera Airways’ pilots and cabin crew have already been fully vaccinated, and we continue to mandate strict safety measures in all our facilities. Our customers can rest assured that they will be travelling safely to and from London with us.”

In addition, the airline released an announcement addressing a possible easing of restrictions stating: “Currently, only fully vaccinated Kuwaitis can travel into and out of Kuwait. A widening of entry permissions to Kuwait, to include all UK originating passengers who have been fully vaccinated, is under consideration.”

In October 2019 Jazeera Airways launched flights to London Gatwick airport, but they were suspended due to the onset of Covid-19. Jazeera will now join British Airways and Kuwait Airways on the Kuwait International-London Heathrow route.
