Ministry urged to give nod for Kuwait’s cargo city
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has urged the Ministry of Finance to approve the project documents for the operator of the new Kuwait Air Cargo City, which are related to the design, construction, management, operation, maintenance, renovation and development of the cargo city and the facilities necessary to provide freight handling, storage, and distribution services at Kuwait International Airport. The project is due to be launched in a limited global bid for 20 years. The project is considered a quantum leap in the field of improving the shipping sector and will contribute to raising the state’s revenues. It will be built on a plot of three million sq. mts. with the aim of strengthening the position of Kuwait International Airport to be among the largest logistics centers in the MENA.
