I regularly fly in Kuwait City Kochi Flights and back. While my colleague always suggested me to try Air India Express flight, I had always avoided. However, my first interaction with the airline recently went ahead with no complaints, and I was impressed by their customer service. And I felt very lucky to get a ticket at a much lower price than before, thanks to the amazing discount offers at Cleartrip. - by

My Air India Express flight from Kuwait to Trivandrum was delayed by an hour. I was frustrated but eventually when I boarded I was indeed impressed by the crew and the meal I had pre-booked. They even gave a snack box. - by

I booked a round trip for Kuwait City Bahrain on Cleartrip via Air India Express. Both ways the flight was good. I was told by someone that the airline is not good but from my own experience I can confidently say that it is an airline you can trust. - by
