Kuwait Airways To Expand Flight Services


Kuwait International Airport has undergone changes this year with the infrastructure of the airport being updated and a new terminal T4 that opened in July 2018.



Kuwait Airways offers services to around 40 destinations across the world and seven among them are for India.

The Airways aims to expand the flight services in order to become a regional hub of trade, investment and finance.

As a part of its expansion strategy, a new office of Kuwait Airways was opened in New Delhi.

Present at the newly renovated office, Kuwait Ambassador HH Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah said,

“There has been an increase in the number of passengers going to Kuwait. The number of Indian citizens increased from 600 thousand to one million, so there must also be an increase in the number of flights.”

Kuwait Airways was established in the year 1953 as a private company named Kuwait National Airways. In 1963, this company was taken over completely by the Kuwaiti government.

Furthermore, a new airport, which will be the biggest in the Gulf is also expected to open in Kuwait in 2022. The agreement for this airport was signed with Turkish company two years ago. While, Kuwait International Airport has a capacity of taking 4.5 million passengers a year, this new airport will be huge and will have a capacity of 12 million passengers per year.

The airways has also been subject to the special care of the leadership as was evident in the fact that leadership in Kuwait is eager to develop the infrastructure related to air services.

But, it is not possible to focus only on one aspect in aviation. This business is a sensitive one and a lot of things— airport, human resources, airport staff, etc needs to be looked after, especially in the aviation sector.

The Ambassador believes that the situation has been good for Kuwait Airways so far and it has done well in aviation.



He further states that as a part of Kuwait Vision 2035, Kuwait Airways is developing its infrastructure and improving services. He also underscored the importance of using IT Technology in this industry which is already revolutionising the travel sector.
