KUWAIT CITY: Director General of Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) Yousef Al-Fawzan stressed the need to enhance security regulations at Kuwait International Airport for the protection of travelers and to provide added security for them in light of the tense regional and international circumstances, especially due to DAESH terrorist organization and other threats.
Al-Fawzan explained that DGCA will not allow passengers to enter the plane one hour before take-off. The passengers, planes and luggage will be inspected thoroughly and security plans will be implemented by the security personnel of Ministry of Interior for protecting the airport.
He revealed that a British company will be in charge of carrying out the security-related tasks. Al-Fawzan indicated that the airport has been facing congestion due to inspection procedures after the company started its activities but this is essential considering the situation in the region. He urged all citizens and residents to cooperate, “because what we do is in favor of you and your families, and for facilitating your travel in comfort and safety”.
