Transportation to Kuwait City Center from Airport


Kuwait Intl. Airport

Kuwait, a half-century old Kuwait's namesake capital city, stands out as a commercial city. Kuwait city, which was ruined during the war, has been literally rebuilt with the help of foreign workers hosted by the city. More than half of the city's population consists of the foreign workers.

The city manages to be the center of attraction of the Middle East with its modern structures, two ports that have recently been put into service and an international airport. Kuwait International Airport is the most remarkable airport in the Middle East with its elegant architecture. The airport, located in the Farwaniyah area of the city, is 15 kilometers away from the city center.

Transportation is mainly provided by the buses in the city, which continues to develop. The buses, which provide transportation even to the farthest parts of the city with new vehicles, are praiseworthy in terms of punctuality in the city where the rail system is not available.

New buses equipped with the latest technology are at your service. Taxi and car rental options are also available 24 hours 7 days for those who want a faster and more comfortable journey.
