Over 150,000 leave as huge rush seen at airport: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation affirmed that approximately 150,000 passengers will leave the country from October 1-11 via Kuwait International Airport to observe Eid Al- Adha holiday. In a statement to the daily, Acting Director of Operations Department Ahmad Al-Huwaidi said 256 flights are scheduled to convey 32,000 passengers on Sunday and Monday to favorite destinations such as Sharm Al- Sheikh, Dubai, Beirut, Mashhad and Istanbul.

DGCA explained that 26,000 passengers travel via the airport daily on board 125 flights, and a specialized team has been formed to work on shifts during Eid al-Adha holiday to ease entry and exit of passengers-particularly those with special needs and elderly people, as the number of passengers at the passport and inspection counters increases.
