eTN Staff Writer  Apr 02, 2009

Jet Airways today launched its daily, direct service to Kuwait from Mumbai. This is the airlineā€™s second daily service to Kuwait from India, complementing the airlineā€™s existing Kochi-Kuwait service. The new flight took place aboard a state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Speaking at a ceremony to launch the inaugural service, Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways said: ā€œJet Airways has already established itself as a formidable brand in the intensely competitive India-Gulf sector in a relatively short period of time, on account of the warmth of its service and quality of its in-flight product. We are confident that the new Mumbai-Kuwait service will prove similarly popular with passengers.ā€

Flight 9W 572 departed Mumbai at 1900 hours and will arrive in Kuwait at 2030 hours. Flight 9W 571 will then depart Kuwait at 2130 hours and arrive in Mumbai at 0400 hours, the following day.
