Jazeera Airways

The twice weekly flights will commence on 29 December

Low-cost carrier Jazeera Airways has announced the launch of its direct service to Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, from its hub in Kuwait City. 

The announcement by the Kuwait-based carrier comes as part of its expansion strategy across the Middle East, Asia and Europe.

The new route aims to connect religious pilgrims to Saudi Arabia as well as offering a new travel destination for nature and adventurous culture seekers.

The first flights to Dushanbe International Airport will take off on 29 December and will be operated on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Jazeera Airways CEO Rohit Ramachandran said: "Jazeera today flies to many CIS countries, operating underserved routes from the Middle East that cater to a latent demand for religious tourism and simulates new demand from tourists who want to explore culturally-rich countries that are a few hours away. 


"Recently, sustainable and ecotourism have started growing in popularity in Tajikistan, with many choices available for conscientious travellers to explore and enjoy while ensuring they have a positive lasting impact on the communities which they encounter."
