Jazeera first airline in Kuwait to launch full web-check-in service


12/03/2012 08:20 AST

Award-winning Jazeera Airways yesterday launched Kuwait’s first full web check-in service that enables Jazeera Airways travelers to check-in comfortably from their home or office, print their boarding pass on any printer and report directly to immigration when flying without baggage after a quick stop and stamp at the dedicated verification counter at the airport.

Travelers flying with baggage can also take advantage of web-checking and are only required to drop their luggage at the dedicated fast baggage-drop counter, bypassing all check-in queues.

The web check-in service is currently only available in Kuwait Airport but will be rolled out across the airline’s network in the coming few months. Jazeera Airways Kuwait travelers may check-in as early as 24 hours before their flight, and as late as one hour before their flight, in addition to choosing their seat while checking-in as well.

Jazeera Airways VP Ground Operations Ali Fairooz said, “Our new two-step process is fast, efficient, comfortable and empowers our guests to take more control over their travel plans. This is truly Kuwait’s first full web check-in service, and we are confident that both our leisure and our business travelers customers will utilize and rely on this new service”.

Jazeera Airways operates a two-class cabin comprising a Business Class and an Economy Class. Jazeera Airways’ Business Class offering includes a separate cabin for passengers, exclusive check-in counters, Business lounge access at airports, in-flight à la carte menu, and 60 kilograms in free baggage allowance. The airline’s Economy Class offers travelers free baggage allowance of 40 kilograms, free on-board monthly meals, and year-round value fares.

In 2011 the airline carried 1.2 million passengers in total across its network that includes high-demand business, leisure, family, and weekend destinations such as Dubai, Bahrain, Beirut, Alexandria, Amman, Damascus, Istanbul, Sharm El Sheikh, Assiut, Aleppo, DeirEzzor, Luxor, Mashhad, Sohag, Jeddah, Riyadh and Cairo.

Jazeera Airways is an IATA-member airline and operates one of the youngest Airbus A320 fleets across the Middle East and North Africa.

Established in 2005, Jazeera Airways Group is a Kuwait Stock Exchange-listed company with over 12,000 shareholders. The company has 12 fully-owned Airbus A320s in operation, distributed between its airline business, Jazeera Airways (six aircraft), and its fully-owned leasing business, Sahaab Aircraft Leasing (five aircraft). Sahaab has assets placed with Virgin America, SriLankan Airlines, and Jazeera Airways.
