EgyptAir will resume its flights to Kuwait starting September 5, Chairman of EgyptAir Holding Company Amr Aboul Enein announced.
The airline will operate two daily flights between Cairo and Kuwait using its Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner, known as the Dream Plane, which accommodates up to 309 passengers.
The plane offers personal screens in the Economy and Business Classes, in addition to entertainment services such as Wi-Fi and the ability to make phone calls through a roaming service.
The company is also scheduled to operate its Boeing 737-800 flights, which come with personal screens and more spacious seats.
According to the statement, EgyptAir customers can book their flights between Cairo and Kuwait through the website egyptair.com, at EgyptAir offices, and by calling 1717 inside Egypt.
Upon arrival, travelers must download and activate the Kuwaiti Health Ministry’s ‘Shlonik’ app, which ensures travelers are abiding by quarantine rules.
Kuwait announced on August 19 that it would resume direct flights with Egypt and a number of other countries, including India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Nepal.
It also announced that passengers who received two doses of the Sinopharm, Sinovac, and Sputnik vaccines may only enter the country if they receive a third dose.
