Kuwait Abolish max Limit for Arrivals – Airlines may shut shop
KUWAIT CITY, Aug 22: Although the Cabinet has given the green signal to operate direct flights to six
countries — Egypt, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal — informed sources said the
authorities of Kuwait International Airport (Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) – had not received
(until Thursday noon) the explanations for the Cabinet’s decision, and therefore it is not possible to set a
specific date for opening travel destinations which can only be done after receiving all the clarifications.
The sources stated that the airport authorities are ready to deal with any increase in the number of inbound
passengers and open the airspace to all countries, considering that in the event that there is no increase in
the number of arrivals, this will disrupt the implementation of the new decision, after plans were put in place and finally to increase the passenger capacity (daily arrivals) to 7,500 passengers.
In this context, the head of the Federation of Kuwaiti Tourism and Travel Offices, Muhammad Al-Mutairi, toldthe daily, the Cabinet’s decision should coincide with the abolition of the maximum limit for arrivals to the country, reports Al-Qabas daily. Al-Mutairi explained if the maximum number of arrivals is not canceled, this will result in the inability of some airlines to operate due to the limited number of passengers they can carry.
Accordingly, passengers coming from new travel destinations will face difficulties in obtaining tickets, if the
capacity of those coming to the country is not increased.
