Middle Eastern budget carrier Jazeera Airways is to gain four dedicated gates at its home base, Kuwait International, in the middle of this year.

The airline has invested in the four gates, and will fully own them, under a project designated Gate Jazeera.

Jazeera Airways group chairman Marwan Boodai says the airport was “not built for the demand that we have today”.

The four new gates – to be opened in June – will amount to a 30% increase in the number available at Kuwait.

Boodai says the airline is focusing on investment on the ground to compete with rival carriers and provide a “more convenient” boarding experience for its passengers.
