Low-fare airline Jazeera Airways will launch five new destinations this year and seek accelerated delivery of two new aircraft, Chairman Marwan Boodai said yesterday.

"The strength of the Jazeera Airways network, which currently includes 55 routes to 22 destinations; our commitment to tight cost control; and the success of our new Dubai hub as a complement to operations in Kuwait has meant that we have established a strong platform for growth in coming years," Boodai said.

The airline increased its capital over the past year to KWD20 million (Dh249m).
