OST-02-14072 - Exemption - Kuwait-New York

October 27, 2003

Application for Renewal of Exemption Authority

Hereby requests a renewal of its exemption from 49 U.S.C. § 41301 to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between Kuwait and New York, NY.

Kuwait Airways is currently the only air carrier serving Kuwait from the United States. Kuwait Airways has experienced an increase in the number of passengers traveling between Kuwait and New York and therefore the addition of a fifth flight will be beneficial to the traveling public. Moreover, as noted above, the Department has a long history of recognizing reciprocity and comity between the United States and Kuwait regarding air transport operations and Kuwait has granted operating authority to any U.S. carrier that has requested such authority.

On December 13, 2002, Kuwait Airways filed with the Department an application to amend its foreign air carrier permit authorizing Kuwait Airways to operate scheduled air scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between Kuwait and New York, NY. See Application of Kuwait Airways, Docket OST-2002-14073. The Department has not yet taken final action on that application. Therefore, Kuwait Airways requests that its exemption authority be renewed for a period of at least one year or until 90 days after the Department takes final action on Kuwait Airways' application for a foreign air carrier permit, whichever is later.

OST-04-18056 - Exemption - New York-Brussels

June 8, 2004

Application for Exemption Authority

Kuwait Airways Corporation, pursuant to the provisions of Title 49 of the Unites States Code, hereby requests an exemption from 49 U.S.C. § 41301 and, to the extent necessary, from any other provisions of Title 49 and the Economic Regulations of the Department of Transportation to permit Kuwait Airways to engage in the transportation of property and mail between New York and Brussels, Belgium. Kuwait Airways seeks this exemption so that it may implement a Code-Share Agreement with Singapore Airlines Cargo PTE Ltd.

As described in the application recently filed by SQC in Docket No. OST-2004-18015, SQC and Kuwait Airways have recently concluded an agreement that will permit Kuwait Airways to code-share on SQC’s freight aircraft operating between New York and Kuwait and New York and Brussels and to block space on SQC flights. As set forth below, Kuwait Airways holds the underlying authority to operate between New York and Kuwait but does not currently hold the authority to engage in operations between New York and Brussels, Belgium.

Kuwait Airways requests that the exemption authority to conduct all-cargo operations between New York and Brussels, Belgium be valid for a period of at least two years. Kuwait Airways also asks the Department to grant this exemption as soon as possible.

OST-04-19182 - Exemption - Kuwait-Chicago via Geneva

September 22, 2004

Application for Exemption Authority

Kuwait Airways currently holds the authority to provide twice weekly service between Kuwait and Chicago, Illinois, via the intermediate points of Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Athens, Greece (Amsterdam authority via Permit issued by Order 2002-9-27; Athens authority issued via exemption in Docket OST-2003-16580).

Effective November 1, 2004, Kuwait Airways plans to commence operations to Kuwait via the intermediate point of Geneva, Switzerland. While Kuwait Airways intends to continue operating service between Chicago and Kuwait, via Amsterdam, Kuwait Airways will no longer require the authority to conduct operations between Chicago and Kuwait via Athens, Greece. Therefore, in lieu of the authority to conduct operations between Chicago and Kuwait, via Athens, Kuwait Airways is requesting the Department to grant Kuwait Airways an exemption authorizing it to engage in the foreign air transportation of passengers, property and mail between Kuwait and Chicago, Illinois, via the intermediate point of Geneva, Switzerland, with fifth freedom rights between Chicago and Geneva, at a frequency of two roundtrip flights per week.

Re: Polling Results

Please be advised that Kuwait Airways has finished polling the representatives of the U.S. air carriers regarding Kuwait Airways' September 22, 2004 application for an exemption authorizing Kuwait Airways to engage in the foreign air transportation of passengers, property and mail between Kuwait and Chicago, Illinois, via the intermediate point of Geneva, Switzerland. None of the U.S. carriers have advised us that they have any objections to Kuwait Airways' application. Because there have been no objections we request the Department to issue the requested exemption as soon as possible.

OST-02-14072 - Exemption - Kuwait-New York

November 16, 2004

Application for Renewal of Exemption Authority

Kuwait Airways is the designated, transatlantic, flag carrier of Kuwait, providing scheduled passenger and cargo service between Kuwait and the United States. Kuwait Airways is currently the only air carrier providing direct and nonstop service between Kuwait and the United States. Kuwait Airways has experienced an increase in the number of passengers traveling between Kuwait and New York and the traveling public has found the nonstop service between Kuwait and New York to be extremely beneficial.

On December 13, 2002, Kuwait Airways filed with the Department an application to amend its foreign air carrier permit authorizing Kuwait Airways to operate a fifth roundtrip flight, on a nonstop basis, between Kuwait and New York, NY. See Application of Kuwait Airways, Docket OST-2002-14073. The Department has not yet taken final action on that application.

Kuwait Airways holds a foreign air carrier permit, issued by Order 2002-9-27, which includes authority to conduct scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between Kuwait, via the intermediate points London and Frankfurt, and New York, subject to the condition that it operate not more than four roundtrip flights per week, provided that it operate not more than one roundtrip flight per week via Frankfurt.

Specifically, Kuwait Airways requests exemption authority to engage in the foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail between a point or points in the State of Kuwait and New York, New York.

Kuwait Airways was previously granted permit authority to, in relevant part, operate between a point or points in Kuwait; the intermediate points London, England, and Frankfurt, Germany; and the terminal point New York, NY; provided that it did not operate more than four roundtrip flights per week and more than one roundtrip flight per week via Frankfurt.

As a result of numerous internal changes at Kuwait Airways’ head office in the United States as well as various changes in the company’s outside law firm, Kuwait Airways failed to renew its foreign air carrier permit and exemption authority in a timely manner.

In addition, Kuwait Airways has undertaken internal action to ensure that all of its operating authority will be tracked and renewed in a timely manner and the undersigned counsel will assist them in this regard.
