Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways restarts flights to Egypt’s Assiut

Flights were stopped after Assiut’s airport closed for renovation in June 2014



Kuwait-based Jazeera Airways announced that it is restarting flights to the city of Assiut in Egypt from September.

The low-cost carrier had served Assiut from August 2006 until June 2014, when its airport was closed for renovation.

Assiut’s airport was reopened last week after runway resurfacing was completed. According to local reports, renovation costs amounted to $16.5m.

Jazeera Airways said it will operate four weekly flights to Assiut International Airport from September 10 until October 3, 2015.

The flights from Kuwait to Assiut will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with the return flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

After October 3, the service will be reduced to three flights per week, it said in a statement.

The route will be operated on an Airbus A320 with a two class cabin.

Business class travellers get up to 60kgs in free baggage allowance and an exclusive on-board cabin. Economy class travellers have free baggage allowance of 40kgs and free on-board meals.

Jazeera Airways has a strong network in Egypt, operating scheduled flights to six cities, including Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, Sharm El Sheikh, Sohag and Assiut.

The airline currently serves 16 destinations in the Middle East across the UAE, Bahrain, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia.
