More flights from Trichy to Kuwait from November 1

Trichy: Air India Express has increased its weekly services between Trichy and Kuwait to four on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from November 1. Flight IX 695 will depart from Trichy International Airport at 9.05am and will reach Kuwait at 11.25am. In return, fight IX 696 will depart at 12.25pm from Kuwait and arrive Trichy at 7.45pm.

Air India Express was operating only one weekly service on Saturdays in October. As there has been an increase in patronage, they have announced the additional services.

Back then, Indian Airlines operated two flight services to Kuwait from Trichy, but it was terminated in October 2007 without stating any reason. The functionaries of Kuwait-Tamil Islamic Community (K-Tic), which has been working for the welfare of Tamils, have been making efforts to bring back the service in the sector.

During the Covid-19 pandemic last year, 40 flights were operated between Trichy and Kuwait by Air India Express (15 services), Kuwait Airways (8), Jazeera Airways (8), Air India (6) and IndiGo Air (3) to bring back Tamils stranded in Kuwait, under Vande Bharat Mission and some special arrangements.
