The increase in capacity has been made possible due to replacement of the aircraft used on the route from a Boeing 777, to a larger Boeing 747.
Paolo De Renzis, area commercial manager, Middle East and Central Asia, said: “Kuwait remains a key market for British Airways, where we have seen solid growth.”
“This is one of the most prosperous regions in the world and has a healthy state of finances, which makes it an attractive destination for business and leisure travellers. This is reflected in the increased demand for travel to the Middle East, to which we have responded with an increase in our flights and capacity to the region,” added De Renzis.
The airline increased capacity on its Dubai service by using a larger aircraft, and also increased capacity on its Riyadh route by more than 1,000 seats a week. From the start of the summer 2013 season, British Airways’ Jeddah service will also become daily.
