Kuwait, July 27: Kuwaits aviation regulator said on Monday that all preparations are firmly in place as the country looks to open its airport for commercial flights this week after a four-month hiatus.
A bilingual guidebook, which can be viewed on social media platforms, has been designed to provide travelers with a solid understanding of the health protocols and safety measures that need to be followed amid their journeys, Saad Al-Otaibi, the chief of an ad hoc committee looking into the matter, told KUNA ahead of the August 1 airport reopening.
As more countries require incoming passengers to provide negative COVID-19 test results, he said travelers should register their flight details online at www.kuwaitmosafer.com in order to schedule an appointment for their coronavirus diagnostic tests.
A smartphone app has also been launched in a bid to simplify travel procedures for passengers, the official added, reminding them to adhere to strict health precautions including wearing face masks and following social distancing rules.
Kuwait’s International Airport will resume commercial flights as of Saturday, as part of a three-phase plan starting with no more than 30 percent capacity.
