The source stressed that air cargo flights continue to transport imported goods and commodities, and will not stop, explaining that the logistical operations of airport and commercial crews are continuing in their work without stopping. On the other hand, with the commencement of commercial flights at Kuwait International Airport, some airlines, travel agencies and tourism agencies rushed to cancel thousands of reservations for departing and arriving travelers.
According to a source for Al-Qabas, some of those offices approved the reservations of the departing and arriving travelers before the General Administration of Civil Aviation approved the schedules of commercial flights for the month of August, according to the plan of the first phase, which stipulates the departure and arrival of 10,000 passengers daily on 100 flights. He indicated that some airlines and travel agencies bear the responsibility for canceling travel tickets because they did not obtain the final approvals by civil aviation, which clarifies the operational quotas for each airline operating at Kuwait Airport, noting that the operational shares for commercial flights will be 50% for national carriers and 50% For regional and international carriers.
