Can airlines in Germany refuse to transport Israelis? This will be decided on November 16 before the Frankfurt district court.
In summer 2016, Kuwait Airways rejected passenger Adar M, an Israeli who lives in Germany and wanted to travel with the Kuwaiti state airline from Frankfurt airport to Bangkok.
But shortly before the planned departure, his flight was canceled. Reason: He is Israeli and, in the Gulf of Emirate Kuwait, all relations with Israel are severely punished.
