Kuwait Airways has operated its first flight to Kuala Lumpur on October 2.

Operations to the Malaysian capital include two flights per week on Sundays and Wednesdays, during the month of October, followed by three flights per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from the month of November onwards.

Kuwait Airways chief executive officer, Maen Razouqi, stated, “Kuwait Airways is pleased to launch its first commercial flights to the city of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, which is one of our most important new destinations with its touristic prominence and rich diverse culture. We will be using the Airbus A330, which is environmentally friendly, and suitable for medium to long-haul destinations, with its unique features for the 8-hour flight from Kuwait to Kuala Lumpur.”

“This launch follows Kuwait Airways’ successful commencement of operations to destinations such as Madrid, Casablanca, Izmir, and so on, in addition to Taif and Medina. Moreover, preparations are being completed to commence operations to Kathmandu and Maldives in the following months.” ​

The carrier said last month that it would operate 13 daily flights to Doha, transporting visitors to witness the FIFA World Cup later this year.
