Kuwait’s civil aviation authorities have reportedly approved operating direct flights to London starting later this month. This comes after the news that the country is planning to increase the traveller capacity of its airport amid eased restrictions against COVID-19.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued approvals to the Kuwait Airways and Jazeera Airways to start flying to London with three flights a week starting May 22, a DGCA official source said.
“Kuwait has no objection to direct British Airways flights to and from Kuwait,” the source told Al Anba newspaper.
The source expected that British Airways will request approval for operating direct flights with Kuwait in the coming period as the summer travel season sets in.
Meanwhile, Jazeera Airways requested operating summer flights to Bosnia and Uzbekistan starting in late May.
