Wataniya Airways’ AOC is revoked

Wataniya Airways Air Operators Certificate (AOC) has been cancelled.

The Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) of Kuwait in September 2018 suspended the license of Wataniya Airways for three months.

The DGCA warned that if the airline failed to address the operational issues that led to flight cancellations in August 2018 would lead to a permanent cancellation.

After three months the DGCA has now finally cancelled the AOC of Wataniya Airways.

The airline resumed operations in July 2017 and operated a fleet of four Airbus A320 Family aircraft.

Previously at the Farnborough Airshow, the airline placed a firm order for 10 Embraer E195-E2s and converted an earlier MOU for 25 Airbus A320neos to a firm order.
