KUWAIT: An Israeli citizen living in Switzerland has filed a complaint against Kuwait Airways (KAC) for discrimination. The Israeli citizen had wanted to fly from Geneva to Frankfurt with Kuwait Airways.
This is the second complaint by an Israeli citizen against Kuwait’s national carrier over its policy of refusing Israelis access to KAC flights.
The policy is based on Kuwait’s law which prohibits all domestic companies from conducting business with Israeli citizens. This includes KAC flights between third countries.
In this case, the Israeli citizen, resident in Geneva, claimed that he was denied access to a seat on a Kuwait Airways flight from Geneva to Frankfurt.
