As Kuwait reopens its airport after months of lockdown, it announced that it will be banning flights to dozens of high-risk destinations due to the global pandemic.
Kuwait is in the process of easing lockdown measures and reopening parts of the country, including the airport.
To contain the spread of any potential infections, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation announced Saturday that Kuwait will indefinitely ban flights to and from 31 countries they deemed as “high-risk”.
Even travelers who visited any of these 31 “high-risk” countries within 14 days before traveling to Kuwait are banned from entering until further notice.
Their ban includes Lebanon, which just entered into the second wave of the coronavirus outbreak.
This is a great portrayal of the service and contributions made by the Lebanese community in Kuwait.
Now, Lebanese (as well as Kuwaiti citizens who often visit Lebanon) will have to wait a bit longer to travel to or from Kuwait.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines.
