Jazeera transfers hub from Dubai to Bahrain

11 June 2009

The Chief Commercial Officer of Kuwait's Jazeera Airways, Steven Greenway, has said that the carrier will switch to Bahrain for its second hub, according to the Gulf Daily News. Jazeera had been operating from Dubai as its second hub, but was not fully satisfied and had 'encountered difficulties'. Although the Kuwaiti airline still flies into and out of Dubai, it wishes to give Bahrain the 'hub' status, he said. This will mean the airline's crew being based in Bahrain. Bahrain has everything the Kuwaiti airline needs in terms of facilities and infrastructure, he added.
