June 7, 2018

Kuwait's Directorate General of Civil Aviation denied on Wednesday news reports circulated about the suspension of flights operated by British Airways (BA) to the State of Kuwait. 'There is no intention to stop this vital route between the two friendly countries,' Saad Al-Otaibi, DGCA's official spokesman, told KUNA.

He pointed out that aircraft of the British company are suspended temporarily due to the routine annual inspection of engines, adding that the company will continue operations to London by chartered aircraft during the period from 10 June to 1 July 2018.
