Kuwait’s Jazeera Airways began operating a direct flight between Kuwait City and Prague earlier this month.

The carrier flies between the two destinations every Wednesday and Saturday using its Airbus A320 neo.

Flight J9 37 departs from Kuwait at 8.20 am and lands in Prague’s Terminal 1 at 12.45pm.

The return flight J9 38 leaves Prague at 1.30pm on the same day and arrives in Kuwait at 7.35pm.

As a low-cost carrier, one-way fares as per the website, start at approximately KD57.

Jazeera Airways operates commercial and cargo flights in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe from Terminal T5 at Kuwait International Airport.

The airline services more than 50 destinations in the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Africa, and Europe.

“In the pre-pandemic period, 12,000 people travelled between Prague and Kuwait in both directions even without a direct air connection. With direct flights, the number could increase significantly. A direct route to Kuwait will provide Czech tourists with easy access to this country, or it can serve as a transfer point for flights to more distant destinations, such as India,” said Jiří Pos, chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors.

Jan Herget, CzechTourism Agency managing director, added,“ The launch of the air connection from Kuwait is very good news for inbound tourism, which we have been working hard to restore. The flexibility of the visa-granting process is absolutely essential for the success of the Kuwait route.”
