Kuwait Airways Compensates 418 Passengers For Flight Delays

19 September 2023 Travel

According to Kuwait Airways, flight delays are usually caused by technical problems, both before and after a flight, as well as malfunctions at external stations as a result of bird infestations or flat tires, which can sometimes be beyond the company's control. Additionally, the lack of alternative solutions contributes to these delays. It’s worth noting that delays in take-off on one day can have a cascading effect on subsequent flights.

Minister of Finance Fahd Al-Jarallah responded to Representative Saad Al-Khanfour's parliamentary question. According to him, 418 passengers were compensated for flight delays during June, July, and August, and no fines were imposed on the company. A question from Muhalhal Al-Mudhaf was answered by Al-Jarallah, who explained that Kuwait Airways employees who were not interested in continuing with the company or did not meet the experience requirements for supervisory positions were not included in the financial increase approved for those transitioning from “regulation” to “contractual” employment. Only one employee filed a grievance, which was denied because the employee did not meet the eligibility criteria for a pay increase.
