New budget airline flying into Damascus

Kuwait - a close ally of Syria - has launched a new budget airline. Jazeera Airways will have daily flights into Damascus from Kuwait.

Flights are being offered for as little as $34, and bookings are already being taken. But the company's website still isn't running yet.

Jazeera Airlines will also fly daily to Beirut, Dubai and Manama. It will fly weekly into Amman.

Kuwait a close ally of Syria? I'm assuming you're being funny.

As strange as it sounds, Kuwait is one of the biggest investors in Syria. It has also provided a lot of political support.
