Knowing the airport fees is very important so you can prepare the right amount of cash. Recently, Kuwaiti authorities were able to announce the new set of airport fees for arriving and departing passengers.
According to the State Minister for Housing Affairs and the State Minister for Services Affairs, Abdullah Marafi, a ministerial decision was issued charging KD 3 for departure and KD 2 for arrival.
The said airport fees will be charged directly into the airline ticket paid by the passenger. The decision will take effect on June 1, 2021.
The charges were based on the previous decision, as stated by the Directorate-General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) spokesman Saad Al-Otaibi.
“These fees were approved a long time ago and are basically a reduction of the old KD 8 charges (KD 4 on departure and KD 4 on arrival). In fact, KD 5 is one of the lowest airport fees in the world. The decision will be effective from June 1 and applies to all passengers,” says Otaibi.
This means that you will be paying much lesser airport fees starting this year. This will remove some of the load on the passenger’s shoulder.
