Wataniya Airways to operate at Kuwait Airport


KUWAIT-- The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Sunday handed over an Air Operators' Certificate (AOC) to Wataniya Airways, boosting number of national carriers in Kuwait International Airport, DGCA President said.

Sheikh Salman Al-Sabah made the remarks during the signing of the operation agreement with Wataniya Airways Board Chairman Ali Al-Fozan, hoping the carrier would boost commercial transportation in Kuwait.

He said the government of Kuwait was keen on developing commercial transportation and thus create the legislative environment for the air transport.

The DGCA, he added, hoped the new terminal would be ready by 2021 to contain more passengers.

Al-Fozan said the aviation sector was a great tool to development and would contribute to creation of jobs.

He said Wataniya sought to develop national human resources and create job opportunities for the Kuwaiti youth "to take over the company's command positions in near future." Wataniya Airways, said Al-Fozan, would be using latest technologies, and follow operations and travel-related measures applied by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Air Transport Bureau (ICAO).
