The Kuwait-based low cost carrier Jazeera Airways reported on its financial and operational performance for the second quarter of the year, announcing an operating revenue of KD7.4 million and 137.7% increase in number of passengers.
Jazeera Airways has taken delivery of its seventh Airbus A320neo aircraft as it looks to capitalise on the recovery of the global aviation industry after the coronavirus pandemic.
Jazeera said it will receive two more A320neo planes this year as it expands its fleet.
Jazeera Airways’ fleet now includes 15 aircraft with seven A320neo. It said the A320neo has a range of benefits which include fuel-saving, longer range flights, quieter engines with less CO2 emissions, additional payload and lower operating costs.
The operational performance shows positive signs that travel will recover at a fast pace after eased restrictions come to effect by mid of Q3 2020 and the number of vaccinated in Kuwait improve.
