  • Kuwait News

Airlines have been given the green light to operate outbound flights for expatriates from Kuwait.


The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) announced on Saturday that the suspension of flights would be lifted in order to accommodate members of the expat community who wished to return to their native countries.

The country announced a complete shutdown of passenger flights from March 13. Since then, only repatriation and deportation flights have departed, including several by Kuwait Airways, Turkish Airlines and EgyptAir.

A statement on the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) said: “The DGCA will coordinate with airway companies to schedule the flights for expatriates eager to travel back to their respective home countries.”

Meanwhile, a plane belonging to the Indian Air Force, carrying medical supplies to combat coronavirus, arrived in Kuwait on Saturday.

Kuwait recorded a further 161 cases on Saturday, taking the total number to 1,154. The country has registered just one death to date.
