November 4, 2020

The Director of the Air Transport Department at the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Abdullah Al-Rajhi, decided to impose fines against 19 airlines and travel and tourism offices for committing violations of the laws and circulars issued by the DGCA regarding the air transport market.

In a press statement, Al-Rajhi said that the committee looked into travelers’ complaints, violations noted by the travel and tourism inspectors, particularly those violations written down against airline companies for the previous period before the start of the coronavirus pandemic, explaining that the committee will continue its meeting this month to consider the remaining violators.

Al-Rajhi highlighted the need to abide by all laws and issued circulars which are passed to regulate the air transport market in Kuwait. He stressed the lack of cooperation in handing out the necessary penalties against violators to preserve the rights of the state and travelers. In this context, Al-Rajhi revealed that five companies and travel and tourism offices have been caught for committing violations during the continuous inspection tours of the air transport market and the tourism and travel offices. He emphasized the continuation of surprise rounds and issuing the necessary penalties against the violators, as the violators of the law in the air transport market will be meted out punishments.
