Jet Airways, India's international premier carrier, will now have a total of 11 flights each week from Mumbai to Kuwait. Passengers taking these flights from Kuwait can easily connect from Mumbai to 50 other domestic destinations, as well as key cities in the Far East and Southeast Asia and major capitals in South Asia.

Flight 9W 574 will leave Mumbai at 10:20 pm (local time) everyday from Thursday to Sunday, and will arrive at 11:50 pm (local time) in Kuwait. The return flight, 9W 573, will leave Kuwait the next day at 12:50 midnight (local time), and will arrive Mumbai at 7:30 am (local time). These flights will use the state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft. These weekly four additional flights shall complement the existing once-daily flights already operating between the two cities.
