‘Kuwait Airways to undergo strategic overhaul’

Posted on : Tuesday 29th of August 2017

Kuwait Airways Corporation (KAC) is set to outline a new strategic overhaul later this year, according to Kuwaits state news service. Minister of State for Economic Affairs, Hind al Sabeeh, told the agency that the new plan will be completed before the end of the year and would help the airline regain lost glory. Plagued by years of losses, Kuwait Airways has been struggling to reform. Privatisation is often debated and the airline has been implementing an ambitious fleet modernisation programme, but hasnt been able to transform traffic on new routes into positive financial results.

The airline is also suffering a crisis of leadership. Former CEO Rasha Al Roumi, who was heading the airlines five-year turnaround plan, resigned in controversial circumstances earlier this year, citing lack of government support and preferential treatment to other carriers in the country. Her grievances included a $1.9 billion (KD 600 million) payment which she says the government had pledged to but instead chose to award to another local competitor.
