Wataniya Airways is a Kuwaiti airline previously owned by Kuwait National Airways. Based in Kuwait City, Wataniya operates a network of Eastern European services from Kuwait Airport, with plans of expanding its route network with services to Indian subcontinent and Gulf cities. On 16-Mar-2011, the airline announced it has ceased operations due to the airline's "financial situation and regional unrest." Wataniya Airways planned to indemnify its losses and issue an IPO with the aim of increasing its capital to KWD24 million (USD85.2 million) and resuming operations. The airline relaunched service operations on 11-Jul-2017 with Kuwait-Tbilisi service using A320 aircraft.
