Kuwait Airways is keen to resume its weekly flight from the capital of Kuwait to Karachi. There is an immense potential for the airline to grab a share of the market in Pakistan, particularly in Karachi.
Back in 2000, Kuwait Airways discontinued its flight operations in Karachi. As the airline’s office located in Sheraton Hotel was destroyed by a bomb blast, the airline halted its flight operations in Pakistan. Later, the flights were resumed to Lahore and the federal capital Islamabad.
There are more than 100,000 Pakistanis that are living in various cities in Kuwait. Once the flight operations are resumed to Karachi, it will facilitate the Pakistani Diasporas living in Kuwait. It will also help in enhancing trade between the two countries.
This increase and expansion of flight operations will enhance competition among foreign and local airlines.
