Jet Airways will launch daily, direct services to Kuwait from Mumbai from March 29th 2009, the airline has confirmed.
This will be the airline's second daily service to Kuwait from India, complementing the airline's existing Kochi-Kuwait service, and will be operated aboard a state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
Flight 9W 572 will depart Mumbai at 19:00, arriving in Kuwait at 20:30. Flight 9W 571 will then depart Kuwait at 21:30 and arrive in Mumbai at 04:00.
According to Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, chief of Jet Airways: "Jet Airways has already established itself as a formidable brand in the intensely competitive India-Gulf sector in a relatively short period of time, on account of the warmth of its service and quality of its in-flight product. We are confident that the new Mumbai-Kuwait service will prove similarly popular with passengers."
In addition to Kuwait, Jet Airways also flies daily from India to Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East.
