Mr. Ahmed Al-Hilal
Commercial Director of Kuwait Airways:

"Jaap is the best consultant that I ever worked with."

The aviation environment in the Gulf region is extremely dynamic.

Kuwait Airways faces the challenge to position itself despite a number of unique set-backs.

For example, the company had to recover from a war in which it lost most of its fleet and has special obligations being state-owned.

Schedule Consult supported Kuwait Airways in dealing with these challenges.


Mr. Khalid Al-Ajmi - KWISPKU:

"I want to state for the records that Schedule Consult through Mr. Jaap has presented the most effective analytical study in regard to KU schedules.

KU has relations with many consultation entities, and by far Schedule Consult was the best in regard to the depth and creativity he has shown and presented.

I would highly recommend his services and his expertise in schedules planning and economic evaluation and justification."
