Mumbai, March 5 (IANS) India’s leading private air carrier Jet Airways Thursday announced that it will launch direct daily flights from Mumbai to Kuwait from March 29.
This will be the airline’s second daily service to Kuwait from India. At present, Jet is operating daily flights from Kochi to Kuwait.

The airline is also operating daily flights to Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East.

Jet chief executive Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said the airline had established itself as a formidable brand in the intensely competitive India-Gulf sector in a relatively short period of time.

“We are confident that the new Mumbai-Kuwait service will prove similarly popular with passengers. We will operate the new flight aboard a state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft,” he said a statement.

The flight will depart Mumbai at 7.00 p.m. and reach Kuwait at 8.30 p.m. local time. On return, the flight will depart Kuwait at 9.30 p.m. and arrive in Mumbai at 4.00 a.m.

According to government figures, there are about 4.82 million Indians living in the Gulf countries, with Kuwait housing 550,000 of them.
