The initiative follows a pledge by the airline to support efforts made by the Government of Kuwait.
Jazeera Airways had placed its assets and human capital at the disposal of the government, supporting repatriation efforts as well as converting its Park & Fly facility into the first drive-through Covid-19 testing center in the country.
Announcing the initiative, Marwan Boodai, chairman, Jazeera Airways, said, “We are honored to follow the directive of H.H. Amir, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah - may God protect him – to the government to reward our fellow frontline workers for their efforts to prioritise the safety of our people in the fight against the pandemic. The 50,000 free tickets will be redeemable to any destination served by our airline’s network. The tickets will be distributed to frontline individuals as directed by our esteemed Government.”
Frontline workers nominated and approved by their ministry will be able to book their flight once Kuwait International Airport reopens for commercial flights and will be available until end of 2021.
