Almost 2,800 flights are expected to carry some 352,000 passengers to and from Kuwait during the upcoming Eid Al Fitr holiday, Al Qabas newspaper reported.
Departing travellers will make up about 60 per cent of the total passenger traffic during the 10-day Eid holiday, added Al Qabas citing statistics.
“The Eid holiday coincides with the start of the summer travel season in early May, a matter that increases responsibilities of agencies operating at the [Kuwait] airport to make things smooth for passengers and facilitate their departure and return to the country,” unidentified sources said.
Major destinations during the holiday feature Dubai, Istanbul, Jeddah, Cairo and Doha, it said.
The sources saw increasing demand from travellers to spend the the Eid and summer abroad after the COVID-19 pandemic has receded and related restrictions eased.
