WATANIYA Airways has announced its 2010/2011 winter flight schedule which includes additional services to many of the carrier’s most popular destinations.
The new flight programme, which will be introduced from November, also encompasses improvements to departure and arrival times.
A key feature of the new schedule is the continued expansion of Wataniya Airways’ popular Vienna service, which will now have three direct flights a week from Kuwait to Vienna (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays) and three flights a week to Vienna via Beirut (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays), all with convenient departure times to provide great connection opportunities for guests flying to or from other European cities.
Chairman and managing director Abdulsalam Al Bahar said: “We continue to accommodate the growing demand for our premium services by expanding our fleet and we are pleased to introduce our new winter schedule to meet the needs of our ever increasing number of guests.”
Wataniya Airways will also continue its services to Istanbul throughout the winter, offering three weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Sharm El Sheikh, one of the company’s most popular leisure and short-break destinations, will be served by four flights a week during the winter months, with flights leaving on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Other features include increasing the number of weekly flights to Bahrain to 16, improved departure times for services from Kuwait to Amman and maintaining the regular three flights a day to Dubai.
Wataniya Airways began operations in January 2009 with point-to-point connections across the Middle East. Flying to 12 GCC, Arab, and European destinations with more destinations to follow, Wataniya operates six A320 aircraft.
