We are confident that this will further boost the tourism potential between India and various tourist destinations in the Middle East including Kuwait, Iran, Jordan and Egypt among others. With the largest domestic network in the region, Hyderabad Airport is best placed to serve as the Gateway to South and Central India and the launch of this new service to Kuwait by Jazeera Airways is a testament to this fact.”
