Atlasjet, the private airline from Turkey, is launching scheduled flights from Kuwait to Istanbul.
As of 24 July 2014, the airline will be operating scheduled flights from Kuwait to Istanbul 4 days a week. The flights will be operated to Atatürk Airport, which is strategically located in the heart of Istanbul close to the business and historic centres.
Throughout the 3.5 hour flight from Kuwait to Istanbul, Atlasjet offers passengers travelling in EkonomiPlus a comfortable journey in leather seats with 77 cm legroom. They also benefit from a 40-kilogram baggage allowance, a wide range of complimentary food, beverages and snacks and free seat allocation.
Atlasjet greets passengers traveling to those destinations with a 3 hour flight time or longer such as Kuwait – Istanbul flights with their “Flying Chef” service. The wide range of complimentary food and drink offered to Atlasjet passengers is prepared by “Flying Chefs”. The “Flying Chefs” offer a range of attractively presented dishes, giving passengers individual attention and ensuring that they have an even more enjoyable and delicious flight. The Chef prepares special daily dishes, adding a personal touch to both Turkish and international cuisine. The Chef personally prepares some signature dishes on board such as Chef’s dessert.
Atlasjet passengers can leave Kuwait at 03.10 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving in Istanbul Atatürk Airport at 06.50 and leave Istanbul at 22.50 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving in Kuwait at 02.20.
