Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways is set to launch a new direct route to Dammam, Saudi Arabia, on December 19, 2019.
The Dammam route will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
With over 10.4 million passengers in 2018, Dammam’s King Fahd International Airport is the third largest airport in Saudi Arabia. The service will represent Jazeera Airways’ fifth destination in the Kingdom, following Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah and Taif.
The airline will provide residents of Dammam flight connections to Hyderabad, Alexandria, Amman, Mumbai, Cochin and Kathmandu, mainly catering to the large expatriate segment and expanding trade relations.
On the announcement, CEO, Jazeera Airways, Rohit Ramachandran commented: “We are very glad to be connecting our customers to the sixth largest city of Saudi Arabia with direct and connecting flights at value fares. With its status as the capital of the Eastern Province and a major administrative centre for the Saudi oil industry, Dammam connects our customers to the larger Eastern Province, where around 15 per cent of the Kingdom’s population live. I take this opportunity to thank local authorities for supporting the expansion of Jazeera Airways to serve the growing number of passengers through the King Fahd International Airport with a new and reliable service.”
Jazeera Airways’ flights from Kuwait to Dammam will depart at 12:35 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while the return flight from Dammam will depart at 14:25.
