Jazeera Airways launches flights to Pakistan


ISLAMABAD: Jazeera Airways, a Kuwaiti low-cost airline, has started its flight operations to Pakistan from Wednesday, landing its first flight J9-511 at Islamabad International Airport with 163 passengers on board.

The airline had received approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan in June 2023 to operate flights to Pakistan. It will fly to Islamabad twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays, according to its schedule.

Jazeera Airways currently operates from more than 63 destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Central and South Asia as well as Europe. It offers affordable fares and convenient travel schedules to its customers.

The launch of Jazeera Airways’ flights to Pakistan is expected to boost the bilateral relations between Kuwait and Pakistan, especially in the fields of trade, tourism and culture.

It will also provide more options for Pakistani expatriates living in Kuwait and other Gulf countries to travel to their homeland.

It should be noted that last month the Canadian company Zara Airways announced to operate two direct flights from Canada to Pakistan.

Ejaz Haroon, consultant of Zara Airways and former head of PIA, said that flights from Canada to three major cities of Pakistan will be started soon.

According to Haroon, the direct route between Pakistan and Canada is only with PIA, while the number of travelers on this route is many times more than the capacity of the existing flights.

The CAA has not confirmed or denied the existence of Zara Airways or its request to start operations in Pakistan.
