Arab Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT, June 19, (KUNA): The Direc­torate Gen­eral of Civil Avi­a­tion (DGCA) Sun­day handed over an Air Op­er­a­tors’ Cer­tifi­cate (AOC) to Wataniya Air­ways, boost­ing num­ber of na­tional car­ri­ers in Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port, DGCA pres­i­dent said.

Sheikh Sal­man Al-Sabah made the re­marks dur­ing the sign­ing of the op­er­a­tion agree­ment with Wataniya Air­ways Board Chair­man Ali Al-Fozan, hop­ing the car­rier would boost com­mer­cial trans­porta­tion in Kuwait.

He said the govern­ment of Kuwait was keen on de­vel­op­ing com­mer­cial trans­porta­tion and thus cre­ate the leg­isla­tive en­vi­ron­ment for the air trans­port.

The DGCA, he added, hoped the new ter­mi­nal would be ready by 2021 to con­tain more pas­sen­gers.

Al-Fozan said the avi­a­tion sec­tor was a great tool to de­vel­op­ment and would con­trib­ute to cre­ation of jobs.

He said Wataniya sought to de­velop na­tional hu­man re­sources and cre­ate job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the Kuwaiti youth “to take over the com­pany’s com­mand po­si­tions in near fu­ture.” Wataniya Air­ways, said Al-Fozan, would be us­ing lat­est tech­nolo­gies, and fol­low op­er­a­tions and travel-re­lated mea­sures ap­plied by the In­ter­na­tional Air Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion (IATA) and Air Trans­port Bureau (ICAO).
