After the decision of the Council of Ministers to allow direct flights to 12 countries, Kuwait International Airport is witnessing a remarkable increase in the movement of commercial flights, which amounted to about 25% of the commercial aviation operation plan, after it did not exceed 15% during the past months.
The flight schedule issued yesterday, obtained by Al-Qabas, revealed that the total departing air traffic rose to about 40 flights, while the number of incoming flights reached 36, with a total of 76 flights, as the departing destinations varied between Bodrum, Dubai, Muscat and Bishkek.
A source at Kuwait International Airport told that the operating agencies are preparing to implement measures to facilitate the movement of departing and arriving passengers in a manner that preserves the health system in the country, adding that the flight schedule is witnessing a gradual increase, as a result of the issuance of Cabinet approvals to open new airlines in preparation for the return of travel movement. Especially in light of the coincidence of the return of citizens abroad with the residents next August.
On the other hand, Kuwait participated yesterday in the meetings of the Executive Council of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization, which will be held in Morocco on the 29th and 30th of this month in Rabat. The head of the Kuwaiti delegation, the Director-General of the General Administration of Civil Aviation, Eng. Yousef Al-Fawzan told KUNA that Kuwait’s participation in these meetings comes because it is a member of the Executive Council of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization.
