- Jazeera Airways, the Kuwaiti low-cost carrier, commenced a new route from its Kuwait (KWI) base, with the movement of thrice-weekly flights (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) from Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen to Istanbul Atatürk (IST) on 2 May. The 2,171-kilometre sector to the primary airport of Istanbul will be operated utilising the airline’s 165-seat A320s and will face direct competition from Turkish Airlines’ thrice-daily services. Commenting on the route launch, Kemal Ünlü, GM, TAV Istanbul, said: “Istanbul Atatürk Airport has now become not only the largest airport in Turkey but also one of the most preferred and admired airports in Europe. Today, we are performing flights to over 200 destinations worldwide from Istanbul Atatürk Airport, which reflects the modern side of developing Turkey, and we are glad that Jazeera Airways started to launch Kuwait flights.” See how Istanbul Atatürk Airport’s FTWA compares to the other airports in this week’s Arch of Triumph competition.
