Wataniya Airways, one of three carriers based in Kuwait, announced that it has received delivery of its second Airbus A320, which is part of a four-aircraft deal.

The airline, which was awarded a licence to operate at Kuwait International Airport last month, is making a return to business after six years of closure.

Wataniya Airways currently operates direct flights to Georgia's Tbilisi, Azerbaijan's Baku, and Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Lana Al-Rushaid, the company's spokeswoman, told Kuwait News Agency that the delivery of a second plane would enhance its flights under its new five-year growth plan.

Al-Rushaid said the new aircraft will be deployed on return flights to Najaf City, south of Iraq, starting from August 23, adding that it was a key destination for many travellers in Kuwait.

Further destinations will be announced in the coming weeks, she added.
