Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways became the first low-cost carrier in the Middle East to fly to the United Kingdom with its flight from Kuwait City to London Gatwick last week, and has now connected India to the UK via the Delhi-London international flight route. The new service to and from London Gatwick will be four times per week initially, and daily from December 2019 onwards.
The flights will operate in a three-class configuration: Business Class, Economy Class, and a new Premium Economy Class. Prices for Delhi-London flights via Kuwait start from Rs 39,000 return in Economy Class, and Rs 1,20,000 return in Business Class.
For Indian travellers, Jazeera Airways will offer connectivity starting with Delhi on Saturdays, flying via Kuwait to London Gatwick Airport South Terminal. Return flights are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays with lunchtime departures out of Gatwick and arriving in Delhi early morning the following day.
The carrier will be using the Airbus A320neo aircraft. Bookings for the Kuwait-London flights are available on the Jazeera website, via the carrier’s App, or from travel agents.
As an inaugural offer, Jazeera Airways is giving passengers a 40% discount on both one-way and return Business Class tickets on the London route.
Business class passengers on flights to and from London will have access to a 33-inch seat pitch, 50 kgs in baggage allowance, dedicated check-in counters and passport control at the Jazeera Terminal 5, priority boarding and disembarking, and a complimentary inflight hot meal.
The Jazeera Terminal T5 provides passengers with 12 check-in counters, eight self-check-in kiosks, dedicated passport and security control procedures, duty-free shops and free WiFi internet service.
Rohit Ramachandran, Chief Executive Officer, Jazeera Airways, says, “With our new London route, travellers from our network in the Middle East and India will get more choice and greater value than ever before.”
This route will provide better connectivity options for London-bound travellers from India. Jazeera Airways presently operates out of five cities in India – Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and Kochi.
