We wrote before that Kuwait Airways plans to launch flights to Athens, Barcelona, Berlin and Budapest. Plans quickly turned reality: the Middle-Eastern airline announced that their planes would start to travel between Budapest and Kuwait City, the capital of the Persian Gulf country, in mid-June. Additional details are below.
According to airportal.hu, Kuwait Airways’ A320neo planes will commute between the two cities on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The first will take off in June, and the service will operate until the end of September.
We can make ticket reservations for the flight between 13 June and 30 September, based on the article of the Hungarian travel news outlet. The flights will take off in Kuwait City at 9.30 local time (GMT+3) and arrive in Budapest at 1.20 pm (GMT+1). The coming flight will bear the number KU 143, while the departing will be KU 144. The latter will leave the Hungarian capital at 2.05 pm and land in the gulf state capital at 7.40 local time.
The flight time will be 4 hours and 50 minutes from Kuwait City to Budapest and 4 hours 35 minutes and vice versa. However, tickets will not be cheap, according to airportal.hu.
Currently, we have to pay 170 thousand HUF (EUR 435) for an economy-class return ticket. Meanwhile, a business class ticket costs more than 700 thousand HUF (EUR 1,793).
At the moment, the reservation system of the airline does not offer transfer tickets from Budapest to Kuwait Airlines destinations in India and the Far East.
Kuwait Airlines is to launch new flights to Spain, Greece, Germany and Saudi Arabia to Al-Ula, Taif and Al-Qassim. Airportal.hu found that the company has been operating three flights weekly to Vienna since June 2022. They also use A320neo planes in that direction.
In their fleet, they have seven Airbus A320-200, seven Airbus A320neo, five Airbus A330-200, four Airbus A330-800neo and ten Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
