Kuwait: Jazeera Airways has announced opening of its own dedicated terminal at Kuwait International Airport which will begin to receive its first passengers by mid-May.
Jazeera’s chairman Marwan Boodai informed us that the first arrivals following a record construction period of the terminal of only 11 months.
He made the announcement at the company’s annual general meeting wherein he said that the terminal is the first to be owned by a non-government-owned airline and “is a testament to the Government of Kuwait’s belief in empowering the private sector”.
Boodai said: “2018 will be no less exciting than 2017, and the Jazeera team is already off to a great start. We’ve launched non-stop flights to the Indian cities of Ahmedabad and Kochi, and I’m pleased to announce today that our very own dedicated terminal will receive its first passengers by mid-May. The state-of-the-art terminal and parking structure marks a significant milestone in the development of the Middle East aviation system. The coming few months will be very active. More new routes, new aircraft additions to the fleet, and new customer-focused services.”
Jazeera Airways’ shareholders have also approved the board’s recommendation for a cash dividend distribution of 35 fils per share. The company had reported a net profit of KD8.2 million for 2017. Jazeera airways also secured 11.2 percent growth in flown passengers, 6.7 percent growth in load factor, and a high on-time performance of 93 percent.
