Kuwait Airways, the national airline of Kuwait is all set to start operations to Ahmedabad and Bangalore by June 2015. The aircraft’s used in these routes will be Airbus A320 and will be thrice weekly.
Speaking exclusively to Financial Express Online, a senior authority from Kuwait Airways said, “We will be introducing routes to Ahmedabad and Bangalore before June. As of now we are waiting for the clearance. Also, we are adding three new destinations this year which are Munich, Vienna and Istanbul. The number of travellers flying from India to Kuwait has gradually increased year on year.”
Recently, the airlines took delivery of an A320 equipped with Sharklets; the first of 37 new aircraft that the company has ordered for the fleet renewal plan.
The airline has also decided to equip its new A320 fleet with Airbus’ innovative Runway Overrun Prevention System (ROPS) technology. This on-board cockpit technology, which Airbus has pioneered independently over several years, increases pilots’ situational awareness during landing, reduces exposure to runway excursion risk, and if necessary, provides active protection.
Currently, the airlines flies to five destinations in India namely; daily flights to Mumbai and Kochi; six times a week to Delhi and four times a week to Chennai and Trivandrum.
