Kuwait resumes commercial flights with India

Kuwait’s aviation authority has confirmed that five flights will operate per day between the two countries


Kuwait will resume direct commercial flights with India starting from Tuesday, September 6, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) confirmed on Monday.

The DGCA has scheduled five flights a day depending on the seat capacity agreed upon by the two countries and the cabinet’s recent decision to increase the airport’s capacity, Aviation Control director Raed Al-Taher said.

He also stressed the importance of abiding by the health regulations to avoid any violations, the official Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

Flights to India and certain other countries were suspended several months ago due to concerns about the pandemic.

Last month, the cabinet announced that commercial flights would resume with six countries including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Nepal and Sri Lanka. However, it did not specify any specific timeline.
