DGCA once again makes request to increase capacity of daily arrivals-

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 18: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has once again asked the Council of Ministers to increase the number of daily arrivals at Kuwait International Airport; which currently stands at 10,000, reports Al-Anba daily. The DGCA made the request as part of efforts to reduce air ticket prices. With the resumption of direct flights from Egypt and India, ticket prices increased remarkably due to the quota for arriving passengers.
The airlines operating at Kuwait International Airport have exhausted the quota allocated for them; hence, they have been unable to open new destinations. Therefore, increasing the number of arrival passengers will greatly contribute to reducing air ticket prices. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will operate direct flights to and from Iraq for a period of two weeks for citizens and their first-degree relatives who intend to visit holy shrines, in light of the closure of Abdally border for more than 21 months, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources from the directorate.
Sources told the daily that the flights “will start next week only for citizens and their first-degree relatives, provided they are fully vaccinated. Passengers should register on the designated platform before the flight from Kuwait, pay the cost of institutional quarantine upon return and two PCR tests – one upon arrival in Kuwait and another on the sixth day of quarantine. A negative PCR test result must be obtained within 72 hours before the return trip to Kuwait. Institutional quarantine will last for seven days, followed by home quarantine for another seven days.”
