Kuwait and United States seek to forge closer aviation ties

The Kuwaiti Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has expressed their enthusiasm in boosting ties with civil aviation authorities of the United States.

Kuwait aims to learn from the US’ experience in airports management, said DGCA Director General Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah. Salman’s comments came after a meeting with Carl Burleson, the Debuty Assistant Administrator of Policy, International Affairs, and Environment at the US Federal Administration in Washington, DC.

Salman emphasized the DGCA’s desire to embark on cooperative ventures with the FAA, and wished that US aviation bodies can overcome the hurricanes that are battering the United States.

Burleson on the other hand, was elated that the meeting – the FAA’s very first high-level one with the DGCA – went well. He also wished for more joint efforts not just with Kuwait but also with other Middle-Eastern nations.

Kuwaiti-US talks regarding the strengthening of the two countries’ cooperation in securing airport safety and security were also done along with discussions about ways to boost bilateral cooperation in training, development and human resources growth that would improve the skills of Kuwait International Airport’s workers.
