Jazeera Airways will start serving the coastal city of Bodrum in Turkey from its hub Kuwait, for the first time. The flights will run three days a week from Kuwait to Bodrum from June 15, 2019 onwards. Effective June 20, the carrier will depart and return every Thursday from Delhi as well.
The new Turkish destination is an addition to the three flights a week recently launched to Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW), and to the existing daily flights to the new Istanbul Airport (IST).
Flights to Bodrum come in response to the high demand during the peak travel season to the popular summer destination located on the Aegean Sea.
Jazeera Airways has also enhanced its schedule to Istanbul to offer customers the choice between landing or departing from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport or the Istanbul Airport.
Sabiha Gokcen is located on the Asian side of Istanbul while Istanbul Airport is located on the European side of the city.
Rohit Ramachandran, CEO, Jazeera Airways said, “We are very excited to be starting flights to Bodrum during the summer season. It has become an extremely popular leisure destination for the Kuwaiti market. We are also pleased to have increased flights to Istanbul and offer our customers the choice of airport to fly through. Istanbul is a great touristic destination that never ceases to amaze with every visit thanks to its deeply-rooted history and culture.”
A visa into Bodrum is not required for some nationalities. Most nationalities can obtain a 90-day visa electronically at www.evisa.gov.tr, where the full list of countries is listed.
The traveller’s passport must have at least six months’ validity remaining, or he/she may not be admitted into Turkey. See the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (www.mfa.gov.tr) for the latest information.
