DGCA carries out refurbishments at Kuwait Airport for summer season
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said Monday it was carrying out refurbishments in Terminal I of Kuwait International Airport for the 2018 summer season. DGCA temporarily stopped additional flights of carriers and will allow airlines to send bigger planes in exceptional circumstances, Director General Yusuf Al-Fozan told KUNA. He said DGCA also transferred 15 percent of traffic to Sheikh Saad Terminal (T3) and Al-Jazeera terminal (T5). "We seek to transfer Kuwait Airways flights to the new Terminal Four (T4) by end of this summer season," added Al-Fozan. This distribution, he said, would create a relative balance among the four terminals until the opening of Terminal Two (T2) in 2022. Al-Fozan said new machines were installed to issue boarding passes, and conveyor belts were modernized. New seats were installed for the senior people at the check-in counters, security check points were increased from five to nine, while immigration counters increased from 10 to 22. DGCA, said Al-Fozan, would issue messages for the travelers through social media.
