Kuwait Airways Launches New Transit Service at Shannon Airport

Shannon Airport has announced that Kuwait Airways will operate a new transit service on its Kuwait – New York JFK route starting on Friday 24th June 2016. The service will operate three times a week on Friday, Sunday and Wednesday on a B777-200. This is the first time ever that Kuwait Airways will have a footprint in Ireland.

Andrew Murphy, Chief Commercial Officer, Shannon Group, said: “Kuwait Airways operates scheduled international services throughout the Middle East, to the Indian subcontinent, Europe, Southeast Asia and North America, from its main base at Kuwait International Airport. Securing this transit operation opens up the possibility of further developments with the airline. We will be working closely with them to explore further opportunities.”

Philip Saunders, Chief Commercial Officer, Kuwait Airways, said: “We are delighted to be working with Shannon Airport on this initiative. The entire airport community has responded quickly and pro-actively to our requirements, allowing this change in the service to be implemented seamlessly. We are looking forward to being able to offer the time-saving US Preclearance service at the earliest opportunity and to a successful partnership with Shannon Airport.”
