DGCA stresses nor­mal traf­fic at Kuwait air­port

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait’s Di­rec­torate-Gen­eral of Civil Avi­a­tion (DGCA) said yesterday that traf­fic at Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port is go­ing on nor­mally. The DGCA’s Spokesman Man­sour Al-Hashemi dis­missed social media re­ports claim­ing that there was an air prob­lem at Kuwait air­port, urg­ing ev­ery­one to check in­for­ma­tion be­fore post­ing them.

But, he ad­mit­ted that a lo­cal car­rier’s plane only had to re­main fly­ing midair for a few min­utes be­fore land­ing due to bad weather con­di­tions. Hashemi added in state­ments to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that it was a very nor­mal thing and the plane then safely landed.

Ear­lier re­ports had in­di­cated that a pi­lot ‘averted dis­as­ter’ when he steered his pas­sen­ger plane back up af­ter notic­ing that a plane was al­ready in the run­away that he was given in­struc­tions from the Con­trol Tower at Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port to use. The plane landed safely af­ter the run­away was cleared, ac­cord­ing to the orig­i­nal re­ports.
