The sources said that the operation of flights must be successful in terms of equal distribution of operating shares between national companies and companies operating in those countries, and obtaining an additional ‘quota’ for Kuwait International Airport commensurate with the increase in operations, especially with the destinations such as Egypt and India. The sources expect the operation schedules and distribution of flights to be finalized this week.
