About Jazeera Airways

Jazeera Airways (full name: Jazeera Airways K.S.C) is a scheduled airline based at Kuwait International Airport. The airline was founded in 2004 and made history as the first non-government-owned airline in the Middle East. Although not owned by the government, Jazeera Airways have worked to establish itself as one of two national airlines of Kuwait.

The airline commenced flying operations in 2005, bringing with it competitive and new low-cost business models to the Middle East. The airline commenced its operations on a fleet of brand new Airbus A320s.

Jazeera Airways operates scheduled services from the Middle East to over 30 destinations in the region, but also to India and Europe.

Jazeera Airways is the largest carrier serving flights out of Kuwait Airport, having handled a quarter of all aircraft movements year on year. The airline also successfully operated flights for more than 1 million passengers in the first half of 2019.

The airline has been hugely dynamic in popularising low-cost carriers in the Middle East and won the 'Middle East Low-Cost Airline' by Arabian Aviation magazine in 2017. This is one of the reasons it has been featured in our blog about the cheapest and best-value airlines in the world.
