Kuwait, July 25, 2020: Jazeera Airways today announced it will start operating a new service to the touristic destination of Trabzon in Turkey starting from August 3, with two return flights per week every Monday and Friday.

With the new service, Jazeera Airways will now be operating 11 flights per week to four airports in Turkey, namely Istanbul International Airport, Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, Milas-Bodrum Airport and Trabzon Airport.

Jazeera Airways Chief Executive Officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “We are very happy to be introducing a new destination to Turkey after the suspension of over four months at Kuwait International Airport. Turkey has always been a great destination with high demand for tourism, so it was only natural to introduce a new getaway in the country for our passengers to explore the historical landmarks, attractions and rich culture that lies on the Black Sea coast.”

Trabzon is located in the north east of Turkey and overlooks the Black Sea. The city is know for its historical landmarks from the Hagia Sophia, Trabzon Castle, Fatih Mosque to many other mosques, parks and museums. Trabzon is unique for its mountains that fall into the Black Sea and from which one can enjoy the rich culinary palette of the Turkish cuisine.

With flights resuming at Kuwait International Airport on August 1, Jazeera Airways has taken every safety and precautionary measure on its aircraft and terminal T5 to ensure passengers fly safely.

Safe check-in procedures

Passengers must check-in online and download their boarding pass on the Jazeera App or print it from the website.

Check-in is also available up to 24 hours prior to the flight departure at the T5 Car Park, where passengers can drop their baggage and collect their boarding pass. When arriving at T5, passengers can proceed directly to immigration.

Aircraft and terminal disinfection

The airline performs an anti-viral disinfection program in which it sprays the cabins after each flight, as well as fumigates them using anti-viral high pressure disinfection sprays on seats and throughout the cabin. Disinfectant chemicals used are internationally approved and safe for all passengers. The aircraft’s air filters in on-board filtration systems are also replaced frequently, removing dust, allergens, bacteria, viruses and other irritating particles. Constant airflow ensures that the cabin air is refreshed every 90 minutes throughout the flight.

Precautionary measures

Jazeera Airways’ crew wear full protective gear which is disinfected before boarding flights. A second disinfection is performed when disembarking.

Passengers are mandated to wear medical face masks and gloves at all times. Supported by Kuwaiti non-profit organizations, passengers receive a hygiene pack and pre-packed closed food bags to avoid risk of contamination.

Social distancing markers are on the floor throughout the terminal to maintain a safe distance from other passengers.
