Jazeera Airways Top Choice for Beirut Travelers
Jazeera Airways, the first private and the fastest growing airline in the Middle East has emerged as the carrier of choice for travelers between Kuwait and Lebanon. The airline carried over 73,000 passengers to and from Beirut in 2006, ahead of the two other operating airlines, recently released passenger data from Lebanese Civil Aviation showed.
Marwan Boodai, Chairman and CEO of Jazeera Airways said: “This is a great achievement and honor for the airline in its first year of business. Beirut was one of the five destinations launched when the airline first look flight in October 2005. Our seamless connections to and from Lebanon via Kuwait to a variety of popular destination including Dubai, Bahrain have made us the top choice for travelers.
“We offer our customers complete control of their travel plans as well as great fares and excellent service. Our state-of-the-art website jazeeraairways.com enables travelers to not only book and pay for their tickets, but also to change their bookings independently as well as check-in with only a confirmation number. Our travelers have truly appreciated this independence from conventional booking methods.”
Last year, Jazeera Airways celebrated the end of the conflict in Lebanon by offering over an entire flight to Beirut for free. “Beirut holds special place in our hearts, and offering our entire first flight for free to our travelers is the least we could do to support the city in getting it back on its feet after the war,” added Boodai
Jazeera Airways changed the travel industry in Kuwait and the Middle East by breaking away from aviation models known in the region to offer a brand new travel experience that gave its passengers complete control over their travel plans. The airline’s business model raises operational efficiency by incorporating the latest revenue management procedures into the company and using state-of-the-art technologies, enabling travelers to become more independent in their bookings and payment.
