Kuwait Airways has declared the weekly flight to the US airport John F Kennedy in New York would include a stopover at the Irish Shannon Airport, on Friday, as part of extraordinary security precautions.
The flight program has been changed as part of coordination between the Kuwaiti and American authorities, aimed at securing maximum security and safety for the passengers.
The stopover at the Irish airport would not exceed two and a half hour, it assured the concerned passengers. Back flight, QU118, would be straight from New York to Kuwait International Airport. Route of the flight has been altered due to renovation at the Kuwait airport.
