KUWAIT, Nov 14 (KUNA) -- Air traffic at the Kuwait International Airport has been suspended temporarily because of the current unstable weather conditions hitting the country, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said Wednesday evening.
Flights coming to Kuwait's airport have been transferred to some GCC airports due to the impacts of the heavy rains on the visibility, GDCA's deputy director general for the airport affairs Fahad Al-Wagyyan told KUNA in a statement.
The flights were transferred to Saudi Arabia's Al-Dammam and Riyadh airports, and Bahrain's Manama airport, he noted.
All flights departing from Kuwait were adjourned and all passengers were informed about new schedules, he pointed out.
Kuwait is currently witnessing unstable weather conditions and heavy downpours in some areas.
The volatility in weather conditions would continue until Friday morning, according to forecasts. (end) aam.hm
