Kuwait will allow the resumption of direct flights to several additional destinations starting on Thursday, July 1, the Kuwaiti Cabinet announced on Monday.
The Kuwaiti Cabinet said that it would allow direct flights to the U.K., Spain, the U.S., the Netherlands, Italy, Austria, France, Kyrgyzstan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Greece and Switzerland as of July 1.
Decisions to suspend and resume direct flights to some countries are based on the instructions of the Kuwaiti health authorities and other commercial ones related to the airlines, said Deputy Director General for Planning Projects at the Directorate General of Civil Aviation Saad Al-Otaibi, according to the state news agency.
The decision will be effective as of July 1 (Thursday), the Government Communication Center said on Twitter. It also confirmed that “any rule that contradicts with this decision is no longer valid.”
Meanwhile the Kuwaiti cabinet also announced on Monday that vaccinated citizens will be able to travel through its land and sea borders starting from Tuesday, June 29.
Citizens, their first-degree relatives and domestic helpers who have received at least one dose of a Kuwaiti-recognised Covid-19 vaccine will be allowed to cross through the land and maritime ports, the Government Communication Center said on Twitter.
