Saturday, June 16, 2018

Up to 256,000 passengers have used the Kuwait International Airport during Eid Al-Fitr holiday, through 1,700 flights, said Director General of Kuwait's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Eng. Yusuf Al-Fawzan Saturday.

Al-Fawzan made the statement to KUNA on the sidelines of an inspection tour by DGCA Chairman Sheikh Salman Sabah Salim Al-Humoud Al-Sabah, to the airport's Terminal 1 and the new Terminal 4.

In spite of the rising numbers of passengers, movement at the airport is proceeding normally and smoothly, in line with a set plan, Al-Fawzan noted.

During the visit, Sheikh Salman Al-Humoud highly appreciated the efforts by the bodies operating at the airport, with the Interior Ministry and the General Administration of Customs and the DGCA on top.

Earlier, the DGCA said that they had made improvements at Terminal 1 for the summer season.

It is really awesome effort of the airport authorities to handle exodus of 256000 persons leaving the airport. I salute to airport authorities for their effort and job . Well done. But the Govt must understand why they are leaving the country at one time, if they have provided the same facilities in Kuwait which other countries are provided than you wont find exodus of persons to leave out of Kuwait.The amount they spent going out of the country could be saved by the Govt of Kuwait if they would have allowed them to enjoy the Eid in their own country. This is my personal view.
