Passenger numbers at Kuwait International airport increased by 12 percent in June compared to the same period last year.

The deputy director general for air transport safety, Emad Al-Jalawi, revealed 1.36 million people passed through the country’s airport last month, compared to 1.2m in June 2018.

He said that 10,672 flights took off from and to Kuwait International in June, compared to 10,071 flights the previous year, while freight volume was worth 14.5 million kilograms.

Jazeera Airways, the Kuwait-based low-cost airline, revealed in May that about two million passengers had flown out of its dedicated Terminal 5 at Kuwait International during the first year of operations.

T5 provides passengers with 11 check-in counters, six self-check-in kiosks, dedicated passport and security control procedures, duty free shops and restaurants, the Pearl Lounge, as well as free WiFi internet service.
