Boodai said that although at the current time the budget airline doesn’t have a balance sheet for Kuwait Airways, however, it will seize any opportunity to acquire an equity stake in the carrier.

He added that until now, his company has not yet made the bid for Kuwait Airways, nevertheless, the national varrier’s acquisition will bring huge benefits to Jazeera, including cost savings, fleet alignment and maximizing returns.
