Yesterday morning, a wave of fog cleared from the country’s airspace, which, since Wednesday night – Thursday, prevented 11 planes from landing at Kuwait International Airport, as they were diverted to neighboring airports, after the horizontal visibility decreased to less than 500 meters.
Sources told Al-Rai that the fog caused the diversion of two flights for Kuwait Airways, one for Al-Jazeera, three for Turkish Airlines, and one for British Airways, Indian Airlines, Fly Dubai and Emirates Airlines.
They explained that the fog extended from Bahrain to Basra, which led to diverting the majority of flights to Dammam and the Emirates, after the closure of Kuwait Airport, and the overcrowding of Manama Airport with planes, while all departure and arrival flights were rescheduled, and navigation returned to work at full capacity at a later time.
