Visa & Travel
For more than half a century, pioneering visionaries of the Gulf Region and everyday travellers have all relied on Kuwait Airways to help them create meaningful connections with the people, moments and experiences that help shape their worlds.
Our story began in 1954, when we first started to link Kuwait with the rest of the region. We quickly expanded our routes over the next 65 years and today – as Kuwait’s national carrier – we serve many of the world’s key trade destinations.
This growth and success have not gone unnoticed. Kuwait Airways was recently awarded a coveted 5-star rating from the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) for 2019 – the industry benchmark for exceptional customer service.
And as we travel toward new horizons, we will always look for innovative ways to link Kuwait to the rest of the world – a world of limitless possibilities.
As enjoyable as our inflight offerings are, the true Kuwait Airways experience first begins on the ground when we greet our passengers.
The recently opened Terminal 4 at Kuwait International Airport is dedicated exclusively to Kuwait Airways. This allows us to optimize the onground experience of our passengers by controlling every aspect of their pre-boarding and boarding travel. We’ve streamlined the check-in process and enabled a smoother overall experience, especially when transferring flights.
Travelling made easier means flexibility in packing, as well. We offer our Economy Class passengers a generous checked allowance of two 23-kg pieces. As for our Business and First Class passengers, we offer two 32-kg pieces as well as a premium area where they can check-in.
We provide a variety of unique and easily accessible pre-departure services designed to create an unparalleled travel experience.
Our departure lounges give passengers their first exposure to the luxury and service that awaits them in the air. First and Business Class passengers can avail themselves of our well-appointed Bayan Lounge. Our premium Mubarkiya Lounge features spacious seats, an international buffet and a business office. Connecting passengers will appreciate our Transit Lounge, with its relaxing atmosphere and unique amenities.
Our dedicated Maraheb agents provide exclusive meet & greet services for those passengers desiring a faster path through their arrival and departure process. Trained concierges ensure that passengers arrive pleasantly and ready to enjoy their trip.
The Kuwait Airways experience is one that offers a complete journey of distinction and premium amenities. This is best seen in our exceptional levels of customer experience – each a voyage into the remarkable.
Our Royal Class is only available on our flagship B777 aircraft. Uncompromising luxury is what best distinguishes our premier level of service. In addition to offering a level of privacy unique in Kuwait, we provide an array of personal touches that redefine hospitality, beginning with coffee and dates to welcome you on-board and a limo transfer to/from Terminal 4. Passengers can choose from a variety of global cuisines. Our extensive Inflight Entertainment options are tailored to entertain, inform and delight.
Our Business Class is designed around the belief that we have a special obligation to deliver our passengers to their destination with a renewed sense of energy and an enhanced state of mind. Our services permit passengers to unwind the senses and relax the body through an extensive selection of delicious Kuwait-style meal options and international in-flight entertainment. Lie-flat options permit total comfort and relaxation during the flight.
We believe Economy Class is an opportunity for us to offer our passengers more – not less. Entertainment and food options are fully customizable. There’s more space, and as a result, much more comfort, both between seats and next to you. Our award winning Premium Economy seats on our flagship B777 aircraft offer extra legroom for more comfort during the flight.
Common to all levels of service is our legendary Kuwaiti hospitality. This begins with our highly trained cabin crew. Their efficiency, enthusiasm, attention and attitude are the envy of our industry, providing you with a truly Kuwaiti travelling experience throughout your journey.
