Kuwait New Routes This Year.

Tue Mar 13, 2007 10:28 pm

The previous topic from mid february's locked so here's a new one.

According to the airline's sales and marketing director, Ahmed Al-Hilal, Kuwait Airways also aims to introduce direct flights to Beijing, Manchester and South Africa by the end of the year, and will completely restructure its existing network.

This as well as looking at lots of new planes.

Are they also targeting other European destinations ?
Exceptions confirm the rule.

PEK is a good choice but MAN and JNB are overcrowded with daily QR-EK-EY services...EK has double daily to both cities.

I would opt for BHX over MAN because there is less competition.

If they want to restructure their network then AUH and MCT should be suspended ASAP as they arent profitable...AUH is flown twice a week via DXB on A 320s!

KU do a codeshare with Air China (which uses 767-200ERs on the route). So probably it might be an increase in frequency?

I don't think GVA should be affected. Probably a lot of diplomatic and business issues here fro Kuwaitis.

JNB and MAN could form an alternative to the already flying services by EK/EY/QR. But for Kuwaiti and transit passengers?
