Jazeera Airways To Start Operations In Two More Saudi Cities


The first privately owned airline in the Middle East, Jazeera Airways, intends to start operating in two more Saudi cities. It is currently building connections with Abha, Hail, Jeddah, and Dammam.

According to Jazeera, flights to Hail will start on July 21 and those to Abha on July 17. With a dedicated check-in area, speedy immigration, and close proximity to gates, terminal 5 (T5) at Kuwait International Airport is owned and operated by Jazeera Airways to improve customers’ travel experience. With a stable fleet of ‘Airbus A320’ and ‘A320neo’ planes, Jazeera Airways serves more than 50 locations. In June 2018, Jazeera’s airline added the ‘A320neo’ to its fleet for the first time in the Middle East.
