Kuwait Airways experience flight delays

Kuwait, May 21  - Kuwait Airways Corporation (KAC) has been facing countless delays in flights since 40 per cent of its workforce has left the company to work for rival airlines, said the airline’s Chairman and Managing Director, Hamad Al-Falah has said.

Around 80 of their technical staff have left recently. "These employees made up 40 percent of KAC's trained staff," Al-Falah added. "This shortage, although it's being remedied, has caused delays with departures."
The carrier lost KD55 million last year given the increase in fuel prices and fierce competition in ticket costs. Despite all this, Al-Falah said that the airline is doing well. "If we compare the KAC flight delays to those of other airlines, they're 96 per cent less than those airlines," he said.
