ALERT Kuwait Airways suspends all flights to Lebanon over ‘serious security warnings’

Kuwait Airways, the country’s national carrier, has announced it will cease all flights to Beirut starting Thursday.

The decision was made in light of a security warning that came from the Cyprus government, it said.

The company announced on Twitter that it made a decision to stop all flights bound for Lebanon “on the basis of serious security warnings,” adding that it is aimed at “preserving the safety” of its passengers.

Kuwait Airways will no longer fly to Beirut starting April 12, the company said. It is unclear how long the suspension will last, with the company stating that all flights will be terminated “until further notice.”
