The Kuwait and Dubai-based carrier said it is now considering a third hub somewhere within the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia, and planned to open the base by the end of the year. Jazeera is also introducing four new destinations, which will be in addition to the Doha, Deir Ezzour and Khartoum services that it recently launched. The airline is also increasing its A320 fleet to 10 aircraft from eight, with two additional A320s expected to arrive this June.
