Kuwait Airways denied a television report that it had suspended flights on Friday to Cairo, where tens of thousands of anti-government protestors took to the streets.

Earlier, Al Arabiya television said the carrier had suspended flights and was waiting for the situation to stabilise.

Kuwait Airways' managing director Hamad Al Falah said flights to Cairo were operating as usual.

"Kuwait Airways' flights are proceeding in a very normal way as there was no delay or cancellation to any flight from or to Cairo," he was quoted as saying by the state news agency Kuna.

In the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways said its flights were continuing on schedule, including one due to leave after midnight local time (0800 GMT). Emirates Airlines said it had no more flights for the day.
