Wataniya Airways, Kuwait’s premium service airline today began a regular service to Alexandria, The Pearl of the Mediterranean, Egypt’s second largest city and recently nominated as the Capital of Arab Tourism for 2010. The inaugural flight coincides with the addition of a sixth brand new custom fitted Airbus A320 to Wataniya Airways’ fleet.
Wataniya Airways will be offering its guests four flights a week on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Monday from the exclusive Wataniya Airways Sheikh Saad Terminal to Alexandria’s Borg El Arab airport. The airline will also provide a free shuttle bus from the airport to Sedy Jaber Train Station where gusts can travel around Egypt. Alexandria is Wataniya Airways’ tenth destination since the launch of its commercial operations in January 2009 and the third Egyptian city to be served by the airline. The other two destinations are Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh.
Abdulsalam Al Bahar, Chairman and Managing Director of Wataniya Airways said: “By launching regular services to Alexandria, Wataniya Airways is serving the increasing demand for travel between Kuwait and Egypt.
“Alexandria is an ancient center and a destination for culture, known for its cultural diversity and its historic civilizations. Its long history attracts large numbers of visitors from all around the world including Kuwait and we believe the launch of our new service will continue to strengthen the long standing trade and tourism links between both countries.”
