Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) celebrated the 58th National Day of Kuwait on Monday, reflecting the deep relations between the two brotherly countries.
A number of events were held at international airport terminals across the Kingdom. Arriving and departing passengers were met with roses and staff members distributed the national flags of the two countries.
King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh received incoming passengers from Kuwait with flowers, flags and souvenirs.
This was in addition to a welcome message that was displayed on large screens inside the terminals.
At King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah, departing and arriving passengers were presented with flowers, chocolates and flags of the two nations.
In the Eastern Province, terminals at King Fahd International Airport in Dammam were decorated with the flags of the two countries to celebrate the occasion. A statement welcoming the passengers was displayed on screens.
Similarly, passengers arriving from Kuwait were greeted with flowers, flags of the two countries, chocolates and souvenirs at Prince Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz International Airport in Madinah and Taif International Airport.
“All these events were part of the celebrations at the Saudi airports in solidarity with our brothers from Kuwait on their national day and to share in their joy on this very special occasion,” a statement from GACA said.
Kuwait National Day is celebrated on Feb. 25 to mark the day when Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah ascended to the throne in 1950.
