The new CEO is expected to execute the company’s plans to compete with other regional leading companies like Emirates, Etihad, and Saudi airlines.
Kuwait Airways is planning to expand, as they begin operations from the new terminal four building at the Kuwait International Airport. Additionally, last week, they signed an agreement with Airbus for an order of eight A330-800neos that will be delivered starting 2019. It should be mentioned that Kuwait Airways was once one of the leading premium companies in the region before the 1990 Gulf War!
