Kuwait Airways About Kuwait Airways

The Kuwait Airways company was founded in March 1954 by two Kuwaiti businessmen. It began to operate in the following days, under the name of Kuwait National Airways. It did not take its definitive name of Kuwait Airways until 1958. It enriched its fleet of Boeing 707 and B747-200 in the following years and then set up links to New York and Manila in particular, in 1978.

The Gulf War is a critical period for Kuwait Airways, which sees the destruction of a large part of its aircraft. It is still going up the slope and in the early 2000s, signed an agreement with Saber Airlines Solutions, a company specializing in the use of new technologies in tourism. The company presented a draft decree to the government to privatize the company which was approved in 2008. In 2013, Kuwait Airways was declared as a private company.It continues to grow, modernizes its fleet, sets up new routes and eliminates the less profitable in the years that follow. In 2019, it received 5 stars at the APEX Awards, a sign of the general satisfaction of Kuwait Airways passengers. The company is also part of the Arab Air Carriers Organization, an airline alliance.

The frequent flyer program is known as the Oasis Club. The Kuwait Airways lounge in Kuwait City is called Dasman Lounge.
