Jazeera Airways recently launched direct weekly services to Karachi, marking the airline’s second point in Pakistan.
The new route supports the growing trade relations between both countries.
CEO, Jazeera Airways, Rohit Ramachandran enthused on the news: “We are very pleased to have launched our new service to Karachi and offer our customers direct and transit routes to Pakistan’s premier economic and social hub.
“The launch comes as part of our strategy to cater to the large expatriates and business communities in Kuwait, as well as connect customers from our network to popular business, tourism and religious destinations in the Middle East and Europe through Kuwait,” he added.
Meanwhile, Chargé d’Affaires, Embassy of Pakistan in Kuwait, Ashar Shahzad added: “It is a matter of great pleasure and pride that Jazeera Airways is starting flights from Kuwait to Karachi on November 21, 2019, as its second destination in Pakistan. Currently, there are no direct flights between Kuwait and Karachi. We are hopeful that the new direct route will enhance trade, political, social and cultural relationship between the two countries. We are thankful to Jazeera Airways for this and wish them success in their operations.”
The weekly flights are scheduled to run on Thursdays, with flight J9 507 leaving Kuwait at 22:00 local time. The return flight from Karachi, J9 508, is scheduled to take off at 03:30 the next day (Friday).
The total duration of the flight is two hours and 45 minutes from Kuwait to Karachi, and three hours and 30 minutes from Karachi to Kuwait.
