KUWAIT CITY, Nov 9: Since Kuwait International Airport has been opened for commercial aviation from August until 8th November, in a period of 100 days about 192,000 passengers entered Kuwait. From these majority were expats coming in from Dubai and Istanbul after Kuwait had banned 34 countries.
The coordination is ongoing with the health authorities in matters of assessing the situation of 34 countries. There has been a considerable amount of followup done in adding or reducing the number of countries that have reported an increase in corona virus infection cases recently. The quarantine period for those returning from abroad remains unchanged.
As a part of a comprehensive plan presented by Kuwait Airways and Jazeera Airways two weeks ago, sources express a hope for a breakthrough soon regarding the opening of direct flights. The Minister of Health, Dr. Basil Al-Sabah, promised to follow it up and take the necessary technical measures to adopt it.
