Kuwait low-cost carrier Jazeera Airways has recently launched direct flights to Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan.

This new addition expands Jazeera Airways’ growing list of destinations in Pakistan, which already includes Karachi and Lahore.

Islamabad: The Green City

Dubbed as the ‘Green City,’ Islamabad stands as Pakistan’s capital city, boasting well-planned infrastructure, a cosmopolitan ambiance, and remarkable cleanliness. The city is adorned with numerous fascinating tourist attractions that cater to all interests.

One of the noteworthy landmarks in Islamabad is the Faisal Mosque, which holds the distinction of being the largest mosque in South Asia. The mosque’s elegant architecture and serene surroundings make it a must-visit destination.

Additionally, visitors can explore Daman-i-Koh, an elevated viewpoint that offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city. Margalla Zoo, Pakistan Monument, Shakarparian, Lok Virsa Museum, and the Rawal Lake view point are also among the city’s popular attractions.

Furthermore, Islamabad’s favorable location makes it an ideal base for exploring nearby destinations. The charming hill station of Murree is just a short drive away, providing respite from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Abbottabad and Bhurban are other nearby towns that offer scenic beauty and tranquil surroundings for nature enthusiasts.

Convenience for Pakistani expats in Kuwait

With approximately 130,000 Pakistani nationals residing in Kuwait, Jazeera Airways’ direct flights to Islamabad, Karachi, and Lahore come as a welcome development.

These flights provide a convenient and affordable means for the expatriate community to visit their home country and reconnect with their roots.

Rohit Ramachandran, the Chief Executive Officer of Jazeera Airways, expressed his excitement about the new direct flight to Islamabad, stating, “Islamabad marks the third city in Pakistan that Jazeera Airways connects with through direct flights.”

“As we continue to expand our network, we remain committed to offering cost-effective options for both tourists and expatriates in Kuwait, enabling them to reach various cities easily.”

“By facilitating travel, we hope to promote tourism in Pakistan and provide Pakistani nationals the opportunity to visit their homeland more frequently.”

Jazeera Airways: A growing network

Jazeera Airways operates a broad network of 64 cities spanning across the Middle East, Europe, Central and North Asia, as well as Africa.

With its focus on delivering affordable air travel options without compromising on quality, the airline has gained recognition as a reliable choice for both leisure and business travelers.

As Jazeera Airways expands its reach and strengthens its presence, the addition of Islamabad to its list of destinations reflects the airline’s commitment to meeting the evolving travel needs of its customers.

By providing direct flights and competitive fares, Jazeera Airways is contributing to the growth of tourism and fostering stronger connections between Kuwait and Pakistan.
