In addition to ongoing flights to Dubai International Airport (DXB) since 2005, Jazeera Airways will start serving Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central (DWC) with two weekly flights starting October 31st, 2013.
DWC is Dubai’s new airport scheduled to open in October. The airport is close to Dubai’s resort city of Jumeirah that is known for its five star resorts, hotels, malls and recreational activities.
The new route to DWC complements Jazeera Airways’ current operation between Kuwait and Dubai International, which will remain unchanged at an average 25 flights per week.
The airport is directly accessed through three primary trans-emirate road networks, Sheikh Zayed Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road. Access is also provided by public transport services including buses, taxis and the metro rail network that extends to the Ibn Battuta shopping mall nearby. DWC is at close proximity to the Jumeirah Village, International Media Production Zone, Sports City, Motor City and the Arabian Ranches.
Al Maktoum International is a key component of Dubai Airports’ long-term expansion plan. The airport will start receiving passengers in October with an immediate capacity to handle seven million passengers annually. Upon completion, Al Maktoum International will become the world’s largest airport with five runways and an ultimate capacity of 160 million passengers and 12 million tons of cargo per annum.
Jazeera Airways serves from Kuwait 19 popular destinations in the Middle East, including high-demand business, leisure, family, and weekend destinations such as Dubai, Bahrain, Beirut, Alexandria, Amman, Istanbul, Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor, Assiut, Sohag, Mashhad, Jeddah, Riyadh, Cairo and Al Najaf.
