Kuwait airport to operate at 100% capacity in two weeks

As the health situation has stabilised and cases are at an all-time low, the Kuwaiti government is considering opening the Kuwait airport completely and resuming operations at 100 percent capacity, local media reported.

The COVID-19 committee is expected to meet soon to discuss the chances of reopening the airport in two weeks. Civil Aviation is awaiting the schedule to resume direct flights from Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh.

This comes after three of the six banned countries were allowed to resume direct flights to Kuwait. As of Sunday, direct flights between Egypt and Kuwait have resumed with around eight flights arriving in the country daily.

Direct flights from India began operating again as of Tuesday with approximately five flights a day. So far, there is one direct flight from Pakistan arriving in Kuwait every day.
