Increasing the operational capacity of commercial flights at Kuwait International Airport has become an obsession for most citizens and residents.
The Deputy Director General for Airport Affairs, Saleh Al-Fadaghi, confirms that the operational plan to return commercial flights at the airport did not exceed 15%, while it was scheduled to reach 30%, according to the previously established operating plan.
