Future Plans For Kuwait Airways?

Thu Mar 17, 2005 4:19 am

What is Kuwait Airways future plans?

I read in Airliner World that KU wanted to get rid of one of their widebody types (777 or A340), have they come up with a decision?

KU current fleet is: (According to Air Fleets)

1x Boeing 747-400
1x Boeing 747-200B
4x Airbus A340-300
2x Boeing 777-200ER
5x Airbus A300-600R's
2x Airbus A310-300's
3x Airbus A320-200's

Also do they have any new long haul plans, I know they already serve JFK via LHR?

Hiya B742

Fleet plans still not finalized. Nothing new on that front. And nothing new will come of it before the Kuwaiti Parliament approves the carrier's budget.

Same goes for route network. Though the airline is reorganizing their schedules for some routes, ie increasing frequency to some current destinations, they have - so far- only looked at dropping loss making routes. Opening of new routes, for the time being, is not part of their short-term strategy. This all plays part of their cost-cutting measures.

On the upside, the homepage has finally been revamped: http://www.kuwaitairways.com. This will be the site they'll use to launch their online booking portal.

Cheers.

The website shows nonstop service to KWI from JFK this year.
