Finance minister affirms support for KAC

June 9, 2018

Minister of Finance Dr. Nayef Al-Hazraf said Wednesday the government fully backs Kuwait Airways Corporation (KAC) in its efforts to restore its trailblazing role.

'The flag carrier, which has a special status in the hearts of all Kuwaitis, faces some difficulties and we are committed to helping it restore its status,' he said. The minister made the comments at a 'Ghabqa' (dinner banquet in the holy month of Ramadan) hosted by KAC this evening.

'Throughout its 64-year long history, the airline was able to overcome a lot of difficulties,' he noted, expressing appreciation for the founders of the airline who attended the ceremony. He also thanked the incumbent board of directors and staffers, saying they are making history while trying to restore the trailblazing status of the national carrier on the regional level. On his part, KAC Chairman Youssef Al-Jassem said the airline pursues its plan to modernize its fleet and facilities, and expand its destinations relying on the national cadres.

'Terminal T-4 at Kuwait International Airport, allocated to KAC passengers, marks a landmark in the modernization plan,' he said, noting that the terminal will open in early July.
