It was earlier in March when Kuwait suspended all international flights to and from the country to curb the spread of coronavirus, with the exception of repatriation flights.
Late in May, the daily reported that civil aviation authorities would implement a gradual resumption of commercial flights with government approval, which will be implemented in three phases.
Kuwait has confirmed 65,903 coronavirus cases, 56,467 recoveries, and 444 deaths, as of July 29,
