Middle East leading airline opens direct flights to Pakistan
ISLAMABAD - Middle East leading airline opens direct flights to Pakistan.
Jazeera Airways has launched its direct flights to Karachi, serving Pakistan’s most populous city with a weekly flight. According to a statement issued by the airline, the new service is the first in two decades between Kuwait and Karachi and the second for the airline to Pakistan. It supports the growing trade relations between both countries.
In 2018, Kuwaiti exports to Pakistan crossed the $1.5 billion mark, mainly driven by oil exports, while exports from Pakistan to Kuwait reached $180 million. Kuwait is home to over 130,000 Pakistanis.
Jazeera Airways CEO Rohit Ramachandran said, “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.”
