The Egyptian authorities announced, on September 3, the resumption of air traffic with Kuwait, on September 5, after an interruption of more than a year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This was announced in a press release from EgyptAir, asserting that “flights between Cairo and Kuwait will resume as of September 5”.

“The company will operate two daily flights from Cairo to Kuwait aboard a Boeing with a capacity of 309 seats,” said Amr Aboul-Enein, director of EgyptAir.

Since August 2020, Kuwait has announced a travel ban to 31 countries, including Egypt, due to its classification as a “high-risk” destination in terms of coronavirus contamination rates.

As of September 2, Kuwait had recorded a total of 410,072 confirmed cases, including 2,421 deaths, and 405,470 cases of recovery.

For its part, Egypt reported a total toll of 289,035 cases of coronavirus on Thursday, of which 16,755 died, and 240,325 were cured.
