Kuwait’s Civil Aviation Authority has added the United Kingdom to its high-risk list of countries, banning all flights due to the pandemic.

The Authority posted the statement on its Twitter account.

It added a circular which stated that all flights to and from the UK have been banned following the latest COVID-19 developments.

It said the decision is based on the instructions of the Health Authorities.

In August, Kuwait suspended commercial flights to 31 countries which it deemed a high-risk due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

No duration for the ban was given, but it comes into effect from 8:00 GMT on Monday, December 21.
