Kuwait-based Jazeera Airways has announced its first route to China with the launch of direct flights to Xian.
The route was launched on 19 September 2022 and includes a technical stop in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for refuelling, using an A320neo aircraft.
Jazeera Airways chief executive officer Rohit Ramachandran said: “This a real milestone for Jazeera to be flying all the way to the People’s Republic of China.
"Commercial ties between Kuwait and China have been growing and we see a positive outlook for developing our network further into the region.”
The home of the famed Terracotta Army, Xian is Western China’s third largest city and its most populous city with more than 12 million residents.
Jazeera Airways currently operates flights to 50 destinations across the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Africa and Europe.
