February 10, 2014, 3:10 pm

The Embassy took up strongly the issue with Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation so as to safeguard the interests of the Indian community in Kuwait.

2. Shri Ajit Singh, Hon’ble Minister of Civil Aviation has stated the following on the subject:

(i) At present, Air India Express has a fleet of 21 aircraft, including 4 leased aircraft. The lease period of these 4 aircraft is expiring and they will be out of service in the first quarter of 2014;

(ii) Due to this situation, Air India Express is forced to curtail some of the loss making flights and had to cancel the Kochi-Mangalore-Kuwait and vice versa flights effective from 14th February, 2014; and

(iii) However, they will continue to operate thrice weekly flights on Kozhikode-Kuwait and vice versa sector and have changed the timings slightly, so as to provide immediate connection to Kochi passengers on these flights. Also, many of the Mangalore-Kuwait passengers who stay in the area between Mangalore and Kozhikode will also be able to avail Air India’s thrice weekly direct flights between Kozhikode and Kuwait.
