The service will connect pilgrims and tourists for the first time with direct flights between the Middle East and the country.

Flights from Kuwait depart on Mondays and Saturday, while return flights from Turkistan are in the morning of the next days.

Jazeera Airways chief executive officer, Rohit Ramachandran, said: “We are very pleased to be continuing our expansion and serving a significant demand from CIS countries for travel to the Middle East, specifically for pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, thanks to our frequent connecting flights to Medinah, Jeddah and Taif. Turkistan also attracts religious tourism and these flights will provide customers with convenient connections through our network.”
