Kuwait Flights GuideKuwait is a small independent nation located South of Iraq in the Middle Eastern sub-continent. While it has faced some of the turmoil common to the region (namely an infamous invasion by Iraq in the early 1990s), modern day Kuwait is prosperous, if somewhat due to the fact that it holds the sixth largest oil reserves in the world. Kuwait is also known for a thriving opera and theatrical scene.
Kuwait's capital, Kuwait City, is the political, economic and cultural center of the country, and seat of the aforementioned theatre and opera scene in Kuwait, as well as the largest opera house in the Middle East. Because of Kuwait's relatively small size, Kuwait City is considered the only important touristic city in the small country.
Kuwait International Airport is commonly considered the only commercial and international airport in the country. It is located in Farwaniya, about 15 kilometers from Kuwait City, central. It carries about 8,000 international commercial passengers per year. It is also a hub for Jazeera Airways, as well as the Kuwait Air Force. Hot and dry winds pervade the small state in the spring and summer time, giving Kuwait the hot dry climate in a desert climate that it is famous for. Kuwait is known as having some of the hottest summer on Earth, with a record breaking high of 54 degrees celsius.
