Kuwait International Airport temporarily suspends air traffic

KUWAIT, Nov 15 (KUNA) — Air traffic at Kuwait International Airport is still temporarily suspended because of the current unstable weather conditions hitting the country, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said Thursday.

Flights coming to Kuwait’s airport have been redirected to some GCC airports due to the impacts of the heavy rains on the visibility, DGCA’s deputy director general for airport affairs Fahad Al-Wugayyan told KUNA in a statement.

The flights were redirected to Saudi Arabia’s Ad Dammam and Riyadh airports, and Bahrain’s Manama airport, he noted. All flights departing from Kuwait were delayed and all passengers were informed about new schedules, he pointed out. Kuwait is currently witnessing unstable weather conditions and heavy downpours in some areas. The volatility in weather conditions would continue until Friday morning, according to forecasts.
