Kuwait’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will implement a gradual resumption of commercial flights upon government approval, daily Kuwait Times reported.


The country has suspended all international flights to and from the country since March 13 to curb the spread of coronavirus, with the exception of repatriation flights.

The reopening plan consists of three phases, spokesman of the Directorate General of CAA Saad Al-Oteibi said.

Kuwait International Airport will resume 20-30 percent of operations during the first phase and up to 60 percent in the second, Al-Oteibi explained, without detailing a specific timeframe.

Airport authorities will implement strict measures, such as using thermal cameras, applying social distancing, creating a new seating chart inside planes and a changed setup inside the airport, he added.

As for the rising number of daily cases, the Health Ministry explained they are due to an increase in testing and remain in the expected range.

The country has reported a total of 18,609 cases, 5,205 recoveries and 129 deaths.
