Kuwaiti low cost carrier, Jazeera Airways, has upped its destination count to 13 and is targeting the Dubai market with its new routes. The carrier has added Mashhad and Beirut to its network and is promoting one-way fares to these destinations, from Dubai, via Kuwait, from AED 194 (US $53). Flights now leave for Beirut daily and for Mashhad, twice weekly, every Wednesday and every Friday. Jazeera Airways already serves Dubai twice daily. The privately owned airline, which operates a fleet of new Airbus A320 aircraft, all kitted out with leather seats, also flies from Kuwait to Aleppo, Alexandria, Amman, Assuit, Bahrain, Cochin, Damascus, Luxor, Mumbai and New Delhi. Jazeera Airways minimises costs and keeps down airfares by operating a paperless ticket environment. Passengers can book and pay online, via SMS, or via a travel agent, and travel on an e-ticket. However, in a recent statement, the airline’s chairman and CEO made it clear that travel agents impeded the travel booking process. “Our web site enables travellers not only to book and pay for their tickets, but also to change their bookings without interacting with any middle men or being bound by office hours. This is the freedom we bring to Dubai travllers,” he said. Jazeera Airways recently celebrated its first birthday and in its first year, flew more than 500,000 travellers.
