Kuwait Airport will increase daily passenger capacity
Country begins to loosen some restrictions
An ambitious expansion: Kuwait International Airport is set to increase its capacity in the coming months, up to 5,000 passengers per day, as announced by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of the Asian Nation (read also the article published by AVIONEWS). The head of this department, Yousef Al-Fawzan, stressed that the new operational capacity has received official approval. Furthermore, the airport authorities would be well prepared to put in place all the necessary procedures from a health point of view to protect the health of travellers. In addition, daily air connections, both outbound and inbound, have increased to 67, yet another proof that there is a desire to relaunch the sector. The airport we are talking about is ready to welcome vaccinated passengers of non-Kuwaiti nationality, to be precise from next August 1st, as established by the local government. The ban on entry to those who are foreigners and vaccinated was lifted a little less than a month ago by the executive. Last December, on the other hand, the country said it was willing to allow foreign nationals coming from some states of the same continent to enter its territory. The plan was to cater to those who had and need to work within these boundaries. The first phase of the reopening kicked off on December 7, with air connections allowed to foreign domestic workers from India and the Philippines. Now we are trying to return to normal with numbers that still suggest great prudence but with an encouraging proactive spirit.
