Speaking about the new route, Jazeera Airways CEO Rohit Ramachandran said: “We have been steadily developing our presence in Central Asia, and Uzbekistan has been a particular success for us with continuing growth opportunities.  

"We're pleased to be adding Samarkand to our network in the region. To date Samarkand has limited direct international flight connections and we are hoping that our direct flights from Kuwait will make the city more accessible for both inbound and outbound passengers.”
