New Jazeera Airways terminal starts operations
June 2018 4602

Jazeera Airways, Kuwait's leading low-cost airline, has officially inaugurated the Jazeera terminal (T5) at the Kuwait International Airport.

The inauguration was announced at an event held at the terminal on May 20 and was attended by officials from the Kuwait Directorate for Civil Aviation, government entities, partners, travel agents and press.

All flights arriving in Kuwait on May 22 from 12pm arrived at the Jazeera terminal. Departing flights will gradually be routed to the Jazeera terminal. All departing flights were scheduled to be fully served from the new terminal starting May 27.

The first terminal owned by a non-government airline in the Middle East, the Jazeera terminal will ease traffic congestion at the Kuwait International Airport. The terminal covers a total area of 4,750-sq-m and can handle an average of 1,200 bags per hour.

Twelve check-in counters are located at the ground floor level, of which two are dedicated to business travellers and baggage drop-offs for passengers who have checked-in online. Two car park check-in counters and self-service check-in kiosks will be made available in the parking structure and the terminal to enable passengers to check-in.

The terminal has its own passport control desks at departure and arrival, with only one security check after passport control and none required at the gates due to the new passenger flow system designed to separate departing and arriving passengers. The terminal connects directly to the Jazeera Airways dedicated gates B1, B2 and B3 at the Kuwait International Airport.
