Kuwait Airways’ flight punctuality rose to 96 percent in September from 93 percent in August, the state carrier said on Tuesday. The airline came fourth amongst 169 competitors in the Middle East, Africa and Europe regions in the promptness of its services, according to OAG, the world’s provider of air service information.
This high position amongst the world’s largest aviation firms reflects how well schedule policies have been adopted, it said in a statement. Founded in 1953 as the privately-owned Kuwait National Airways, the Kuwaiti government took full ownership of the company in 1962. Today, it operates flights around the world to 49 destinations.
