April 3, 2017, 8:27 am

Kuwait Airways on Sunday received the sixth aircraft of the long­range twin­engine jets, the Boeing 777­300ER, which has been given the name of Miskan.

The passenger plane is part of a 10­aircraft deal expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2017.
The national carrier's fleet has thus reached 25 planes, Kuwait Airways Chairperson and CEO Rasha Al­Roumi said in a statement as Miskan landed at the Kuwait International Airport.

Miskan will contribute to the qualitative development of the Kuwait Airways' fleet and enhance operational capacities and services for long-haul destinations, she added.

The newly-arrived Boeing will operate over the coming days on long-range flights to London, New York and Frankfurt, as well as to Dhaka, Manila and Bangkok.
The new plane is named after the Kuwaiti Miskan Island in the Arabian Gulf.

Al­Roumi affirmed that the company is boosting its accommodation capacity, particularly on board of long­range aircraft, significantly, at the summer onset.
Kuwait Airways was established in 1953, and the Kuwaiti Government acquired all stakes of the company in 1962.
