Air India Express has announced the suspension of its only flight service between Mangalore and Kuwait from Thursday. The low-cost carrier said the decision was made due to the withdrawal by the country’s national carrier, Air India, of its four leased aircrafts, following the expiry of the contract period. The company also said the Mangalore-Kuwait route was operating at a loss because of low passenger traffic.
