Kuwait Airport Terminal 4 celebrate first anniversary

Monday, September 16, 2019

DGCA organized a special ceremony to celebrate the first anniversary of Terminal 4 (T4) launch. During the ceremony, Head of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation Sheikh Salman Sabah AlSalem Al-Hmoud Al-Sabah stressed that the civil aviation management is currently updating the legislative structure of the civil aviation sector in accordance with international requirements and recommendations of specialized international organizations. Sheikh Salman said Terminal 4 (T4) will generate additional revenue for the country exceeding KD 100 million (about $328 million) over the next five years.

“The government has embarked on a comprehensive review of all laws and regulations that will develop the mechanisms of the air transport market and regulate the relationship between all concerned parties,” Sheikh Salman said, adding DGCA is preparing to issue a new law to turn it into an independent technical body. Sheikh Salman also noted that the government remains keen on modernizing the infrastructure of the air transport sector in Kuwait and achieving HH the Amir’s directives on transforming Kuwait into a financial and commercial hub and showing commitment to the New Kuwait 2030 vision.

In addition, Sheikh Salman pointed to the success of the operation of T4 in record time, as the design and completion of the building,

which can annually serve 4.5 million passengers, took only 21 months. KAC Chairman Yousef Al-Jassem said the company focused its objectives on raising flight timing punctuality from 59 percent in Aug 2018 to about 93 percent this August after moving to the new terminal. According to a report made by OAG, a British Agency specialized in assessing civil aviation sectors’ productive performances, Kuwait was ranked ninth in flight punctuality among 175 airlines in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and the first in

the Middle East.

In my view point its okay little bit compared to old airport but still whoever coming from out side they are using bridge for getting down travellers in Kuwait airways last month I come like that this means the engineering is poor.
