Flydubai shifts Kuwait flights to Saad Al-Abdullah Terminal
September 11, 2013, 12:59 pm

Dubai-based low cost airline, Flydubai, will be shifting its flight operations in Kuwait to the Saad Al-Abdullah Airport Terminal as of Saturday.

The move was approved by both the airline and the body administering the terminal building, said head of operations at the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Essam Al-Zamil.

The airline will be operating eight flights a day to Dubai from the terminal on its Airbus A320 aircraft - with the first arriving from Dubai on Sunday at 3:10am and departing 40 minutes later.

Al-Zamil welcomed travellers on the airline to head to the terminal instead of the main Kuwait International Airport building.
DGCA is looking to ease procedures and improve services at the newly reopened building - a move which comes amidst Kuwait International Airport's vast expansion plans as the number of travellers in the country increases, he added.

After being originally opened as a "Royal Aviation Terminal" for private flights only, the terminal was later occupied by the private Kuwaiti luxury-themed Wataniya Airways, before the company suffered "financial difficulties" and ceased its operations in March 2011.
Since then, the terminal reverted to its previous status as a private jet and helicopter
