Jazeera Airways is gearing up to launch a direct, three-times-weekly service to Abha, which represents the airline’s sixth point in Saudi Arabia.
Enthusing on the good news was CEO, Jazeera Airways, Rohit Ramachandran: “We are very pleased to be launching the first direct service between Kuwait and Abha, connecting our customers to the popular Saudi tourist destination known for its unique scenic landscapes, historic monuments and breathtaking views from its surrounding mountains.”
Ramachandran continued: “The launch comes as part of our expansion in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, adding to our services to Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Taif, as we continue to provide our customers with more direct and connecting routes across the region and on to Europe and the Indian Subcontinent.”
