Kuwait - GoAir’s 4th destination in the Gulf open for bookings

India, 11 September 2019

Now, you can fly to Kuwait from Kerala on a daily non-stop GoAir flight. The direct flight between Kuwait International Airport (KWI) and Kannur International Airport (CNN) is GoAir’s 4th destination in the Gulf region. With an attractive starting price of KD 56 (INR 13,160) for a return ticket, GoAir will be operating daily flights G8 62 from Kuwait to Kannur and G8 61 from Kannur to Kuwait starting from 19 September 2019. GoAir will be deploying its brand new Airbus A320neo aircraft on this important sector in the Gulf. The inaugural flight will take-off from Kannur International Airport at 07:00 hours (local time) and reach Kuwait at 09:30 hours (local time).

Mr. Jeh Wadia, Managing Director, Go Air, said: “I am very pleased to announce the launch of GoAir flights to and from Kuwait. This is our 7th international destination – 4th in the Gulf and sequentially it is our 31st destination. There is a huge pent-up demand on the Kuwait – Kannur – Kuwait sector and we intend to cater to this segment with our basic three-tier business principle: punctuality, affordability, and convenience. India and Kuwait have traditionally enjoyed friendly relations, rooted in history and have stood the test of time. Go Air’s Kuwait flight is one more step in that direction. I take this opportunity to thank the Government of Kuwait and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation for providing all the necessary support. I also thank our GSA Kuwait-based RMI and the Al-Waseet Travel Tourism Services for their deep support and assistance.”

It must be noted that geographic proximity, historical trade links, cultural affinities and the presence of a large number of Indian nationals in Kuwait continue to sustain and nurture this long-standing relationship between the two countries. India has been a natural trading partner of Kuwait and until 1961 Indian Rupee was the legal tender in Kuwait. Nearly 20% of the population in Kuwait are Indians; mostly hailing from South India.

Mr. Saleem Murad, Managing Director, RMI, said: “We are delighted to associate with GoAir and we are glad to be a part of GoAir’s online operations with Kuwait in the capacity of Passenger General Sales Agency for the State of Kuwait. We are thankful to the Government of Kuwait, Government of India and Mr. Jeh Wadia and his team for making our long-cherished dream come true. We will extend our wholehearted support to ensure GoAir commences operations to more and more destinations in India soon.”
