The launch of Jazeera Airways in 2005 broke a 50-year monopoly of Kuwait’s national airline, Kuwait Airlines, and the event attracted several big names from the country, including Sheikh Nasser Al Mohammed Al Sabah, the Prime Minister of Kuwait.
The airline’s success story continued to receive official blessings. In 2006, Marwan Boodai watched as Al Sabah signed his name on a Jazeera Airways Airbus A320 on the airline’s first anniversary. During the event, Boodai claimed that the company carried over 500,000 passengers to 13 destinations in its first year.
