About Kuwait International airport arrivals and departures

Airport Kuwait International Airport, located in Kuwait, 9-19 miles south of the city. Their time one is UTC + 3. Kuwait Airport will exist 100 years in 2027. The first Kuwait arrivals were already there in 1927. It was then mainly used by the English on the way to India. It took many decades before a new airport structure was opened in 1979. Another two decades later they started to improve and enlarge the terminal building. This has ensured to meet the growing demand of Kuwait departures. There were more check-in counters, a new entrance and a larger parking garage. In 2011, plans were made to expand even further. The first phase would bring the capacity to 14 million annual passengers and the optional phase to as much as 25 million passengers. The first phase was finally completed in 2016. A state-of-the-art terminal designed by Foster and his partners is currently under construction.

Flight arrivals and departures Kuwait airport

The airport has 2 runways available for all Kuwait arrivals with lengths of 11,100 and 11,500 feet. From the year 2015 to 2019, Kuwait Airport has seen continuous growth in passenger transportation. More and more Kuwait airport departures go to places all over the world. In 2019 there were the most Kuwait flight  departures and arrivals in history. A total of 15,448,909 passengers were transported there. Kuwait International Airport has also been hit by the corona crisis and is therefore seeing the figures fall sharply. With an extra terminal to be completed in a few years, plans remain grand to bring more Kuwait airport arrivals and departures.

Although Kuwait is often rated as one of the worst airports, that may change with the new terminal. Until then, however, the passengers who arrive see that it was often not well organized, not as clean as expected and the person was not exactly friendly.

Hotels

There is a transit hotel directly on the airport grounds. That is Safir Airport Hotel. It is a simple 3 star hotel but in itself it offers everything you need. If you want to stay a bit more luxurious, we recommend the following hotels:

  • Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Kuwait al Thuraya City, an IHG Hotel (5 star hotels and a 5-10 drive via the airport rd.)
  • The Grand Hyatt Kuwait is just a little further but it is a wonderful hotel to stay in.
