Directorate General of Civil Aviation once again requested the Council of Ministers to increase the operational capacity of the airport, which currently stands at 10,000 passengers for arrival.
Civil Aviation requested to increase the capacity so that it will reflect positively on the decrease in ticket prices.
With the entry of direct flights from countries like Egypt and India, the ticket prices from these countries are witnessing a huge increase due to the limited quota for arriving passengers.
The airlines operating at Kuwait Airport have exhausted the entire "quota" allocated to them at Kuwait Airport and are unable to announce new destinations in these countries. An increase in arrival limit is expected to reflect the ticket price positively.
