Flag carrier for the Middle Eastern nation of Kuwait, Kuwait Airways,
has announced its plan to resume commercial passenger operations
beginning August 1st. This service resumption will mark the end of a
four and a half month suspension of regular passenger services.
According to Gulf News, the Kuwaiti Council of Ministers has
approved a three-stage plan to operate commercial flights from and
to Kuwait beginning on August 1st. The first phase of this resumption
will see air traffic capped at 20-30% of full capacity.

activity to 60% of normal. However, the specific timeframe for this is
unknown and largely depends on the epidemiological progress with the coronavirus.
