Kuwait's Jazeera Airways has almost doubled its net profit at the nine-month mark to KD16.1 million ($52.2 million), after a stronger third-quarter performance.
Jazeera says it achieved a KD9.9 million profit in the three months to 30 September, up by more than 40%.
The budget airline's revenues rose by more than 21% in the quarter and 30%, to KD83 million, over the course of the first nine months.
Having just launched services to London Gatwick and the Kyrgyz city of Osh, the carrier is set to expand its network further before the end of this year.
It will open routes to Kathmandu, Karachi and Chittagong in November and extend its Middle Eastern operations to Al Ain and Dammam in December.
The carrier has 11 Airbus A320-family jets including re-engined A320neos and will take another pair of A320neos in the fourth quarter.
Jazeera puts its load factor for the third quarter at 80.7%, a slight increase on the same period last year.
