Kuwait's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has formed an investigative team to look into an incident where a Jazeera Airways aircraft (flight 787) made contact with a radar-equipped balloon, but the airliner continued to operate normally and landed safely.

DGCA's Deputy Director General for Aviation Safety Imad Al-Jalawi told KUNA on Tuesday that a Jazeera Airways Airbus A320 plane returning from Riyadh on Sunday made a minor collision with a tethered balloon.

He pointed out that the aircraft continued to function normally and landed safely at Kuwait International Airport and all passengers disembarked unscathed.

Al-Jalawi added that a probe has been launched to uncover the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Meanwhile, Jazeera Airways said that it would keep in close touch with DGCA to ensure thorough investigations.
