The Kuwait International Airport was once again busy as travelers continued to return home after spending holidays outside the country, especially from the most popular Arab and European capitals.

The agencies operating at the airport continued their efforts to manage the movement of passengers’ outbound and inbound passengers marking the start of official government starting from today, Sunday, says a local Arabic daily.

The daily said about 140 inbound flights from European and Arab capitals landed at the Kuwait International Airport, including 16 flights from Dubai, 14 from Istanbul, 13 from Cairo, 5 from Riyadh and the same from Jeddah and Doha, in addition to 3 flights from Muscat and two from London, while 138 flights took off during the same period.

The pressure of returning passengers was accompanied by a traffic jam that disrupted traffic in front of the arrivals gate in the T1 building, and the traffic police dealt with it immediately, by regulating traffic and facilitating the movement of passengers.

According to a source, the total number of passengers movement at the airport Saturday was about 25,000 — 13,000 inbound and 12,000 departures.

The source indicated that the agencies operating at the airport were fully prepared to deal with the travel season and holidays, and periodic meetings were held between them, which resulted in the development of a field plan to deal with the movement of passengers, whose activity is expected to increase significantly after the easing of travel restrictions.
