Kuwait, US resume direct flights today

Kuwait


Kuwait City: Kuwait and the US resume direct air flights today, said Chairman of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Shaikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah.

The Kuwait Airways flight KU117 took off this morning at 11.25 am from terminal 1 heading to New York, according to KUNA.

Reoperation of the direct and unstoppable flights between the US and Kuwait caps fruitful cooperation between the DGCA and the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA), he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Kuwait Airways announced that it received approval from the concerned authorities within the US to open up operations of the direct route to New York airport without the need for a transit at Shannon airport in Ireland, which has been used as the transit route over the past three years.
