Jazeera Airways on Tuesday said it has captured a major market share among Kuwaiti carriers on majority of the routes.
The airlines operational performance report for November 2010 showed that it had been capturing significant market shares on almost all routes with the exception of the Kuwait-Jeddah and Kuwait-Riyadh routes where it has lower seat-allocation restrictions compared to other Kuwaiti airlines.
The report is based on data from Kuwait’s Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA).
Jazeera Airways continued to be the airline with largest market share on highly competitive routes in the Middle East, including the Kuwait-Beirut route with a 28 per cent market share, the Kuwait-Amman route with a 34 per cent market share, the Kuwait-Alexandria route with a 49 per cent market share, and the Kuwait-Damascus route with a 41 per cent market share.
The report also showed that Jazeera Airways was the largest Kuwaiti operator on business and weekend destinations as well, capturing a 16 per cent market share on the Kuwait-Dubai route, and 20 per cent market share on the Kuwait-Bahrain route.
