Kuwaiti airline Jazeera Airways on Saturday announced it was to add more flights to Istanbul, Dubai, Jeddah, and Damascus.

The new summer schedule, which starts on March 27, will include four flights per day on Thursdays and Saturdays to Dubai, two flights per week to Istanbul, six flights a week to Jeddah and two additional flights to Damascus.

The airline operates to 17 destinations across the Middle East and North Africa.

The extra flights announcement comes just days after rival airline Wataniya said it was stopping its operations due to its financial situation and regional unrest.

On Friday, Jazeera Airways and Kuwait Airway offered to fly Wataniya passengers stranded in Dubai, Beirut and Cairo back to Kuwait.
