The German government has launched an investigation into whether Kuwait Airways has violated air traffic laws by refusing to service Israelis.
The airline, which is already facing legal proceedings in Frankfurt District Court for barring an Israeli passenger from flying to Thailand, is now facing an investigation ordered by German Federal Minister of Transport Alexander Dobrindt into its alleged discriminatory practices.
Kuwait Airways has been under intense legal and public pressure over its practice of barring Israelis for some time. Earlier this month, Israeli-Arab social media star Nuseir Yassin, who goes by the pseudonym Nas Daily, posted a video that went viral after he was denied flying on Kuwait Airways from New York to India.
