Posted 18 April 2016 · Add Comment

Jazeera Airways shareholders have approved a board proposal for the distribution of a cash dividend of KD3 million, equivalent to 15% of the share's nominal value, for the year 2015 during the company's 14th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.

Jazeera Airways had registered a net profit of KD15.4 million for 2015, an operating profit of KD 13.6 million representing a 2% increase from 2014, and an operating revenue of KD58.6 million. Operationally, the company saw a 4.5% increase in passengers and an on-time performance of 94.3%, making it one of the most on-time airlines in the Middle East. 

Jazeera Airways chairman, Marwan Boodai, said: “2015 was another profitable year for Jazeera Airways, and a transformational one too. We successfully readjusted the airline’s capital to match its size, issued record shareholder payouts worth KD52.7 million in cash, and settled all debts. The company is now debt-free, has over KD30.9 million in cash and operates a growing, profitable business; the balance sheet has never been as strong as it is today. Last year was indeed transformational for the balance sheet, and 2016 will be the year this transformation extends to our product through a series of new and game-changing product enhancements.”
