New Delhi: Jazeera Airways, the first private airline of the Gulf region, on Monday offered one-way tickets to Kuwait from three Indian cities at a rock bottom Rs 850 plus taxes for a limited period.

The offer, which is part of celebrations to mark the carrier's first anniversary, can be availed of only for three days from Monday till November 2 and good for travel between November 12 and March 24 next year, Jazeera said in a release in Delhi.

Also, the offer is only valid for travel to Kuwait from Delhi, Mumbai and Kochi and not on return flights, according to the airline's website.

COST EFFECTIVE: The offer is only valid for travel to Kuwait from Delhi, Mumbai and Kochi and not on return flights.

The taxes on the Kuwait sector are over $75 or about Rs 3,600. Customers can book their tickets through travel agents or directly on www.jazeeraairways.com and reserve their seats, it said.

Jazeera, which operates a fleet of just four new Airbus A-320s, claims to have emerged as the fastest growing airline that operates to 13 global destinations and carried 5,00,000 passengers within a year of its launch.

Even though this is a limited one-time offer, the scale of its validity for travel is likely to give other competing airlines on the India-Gulf sector a run for their money.

Public sector Indian and Air India are the only Indian airlines currently allowed to operate on the Gulf sectors.
