The Kuwaiti government has announced that it has resumed commercial flights with six countries, including Egypt, after having previously restricted flights over COVID-19 concerns, Kuwaiti official news agency KUNA reported.
The other countries with which Kuwait has resumed commercial flights are Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
Reports say the decision comes after a meeting of Kuwait’s Cabinet on Wednesday. The government spokesperson, Tareq Al-Mazrem has stated that the decision is conditional to adherence to regulations set in place by the country’s ministerial COVID-19 emergency committee.
Further measures have been taken by Kuwait’s ministerial coronavirus emergency committee concerning the flights with these countries.
Kuwaiti Cabinet has also allowed its residents, who have received unapproved vaccinations outside the country (Sinopharm, Sinovac, and Sputnik V), to enter the country, provided that they take one more dose of one of the four approved vaccinations in Kuwait – Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
Reportedly, the Kuwaiti Cabinet has also given the nod to increase Kuwait airport’s capacity from 10,000 passengers to 15,000 passengers daily.
