Region: Middle East


As Kuwait serves as a centre for the oil industry and a logistics hub for the rebuilding of Iraq, government and military business dominate the aviation sector. The national carrier is the government-owned Kuwait Airways, which until 2005 had a monopoly on aviation operations in Kuwait. Kuwait Airways operates scheduled international services throughout the Middle East, to the Indian subcontinent, Europe, Southeast Asia and North America. Since 2005 and the liberalisation of air services in Kuwait, the sector has opened up to two new carriers, Wataniya Airways and the LCC Jazeera Airways. The gateway to Kuwait is the Kuwait International Airport.

I didn't realise all this traffic data was here. The data is much more up-to-date than the other results we usually use - I'll be using this from now on.
