Kuwait International Airport (KWI) has suspended flight operations due to rainy weather in the early morning hours (local time) on Thursday, November 15. Significant flight delays and cancelations are to be expected at KWI over the coming hours until weather conditions improve.


Flooding in Kuwait has left at least one person dead as of November 15. Minister of Public Works Hussam al-Roumi resigned on November 9 due to extensive damage to public infrastructure, while the Kuwait Oil Company issued a temporary state of emergency which was lifted on November 10.


Travelers flying to or from KWI are advised to confirm flight reservations and to contact their airline for additional information.

Individuals in Kuwait are advised to follow weather forecasts, prepare for transportation disruptions, and adhere to any advice issued by the local authorities (e.g. potential evacuation orders). In the event of flooding, keep in mind that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
