New aircraft will be deployed on return flights to Najaf City starting from August 23
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.
