Kuwait Flights FAQs

A flight from London to Kuwait International Airport takes approximately six hours.

You can use our low fare finder to find the cheapest flights to Kuwait City. It's a popular destination to visit during spring and autumn when the temperatures are slightly cooler, so you may find prices are lower during winter or summer.

Kuwait is a wealthy country with plenty of luxury hotels and international restaurants, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find hotel and dining options for every budget. You can keep costs low by shopping at traditional souks and getting a feel for authentic local flavours at pop-up street food stalls.

Kuwait International Airport is 10 miles south of the city. Taxis are readily available and take around 20 minutes to reach the city centre. There is a local bus network in Kuwait, but most visitors use taxis to get around.

You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what Kuwait has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

Kuwait City is a modern Middle Eastern nation with something for everyone. Its slick architecture and international food scene attract visitors from around the world, while its traditional values and history are kept alive through its many souks, mosques, museums and historical sights.

A city break destination with the added bonus of soft, sandy beaches, Kuwait City is also home to Green Island – the region’s first man-made island, complete with its own sea-water pool, amphitheatre and lush green gardens.

Citizens of the UK and Ireland and EU passport holders require a visa to visit. You can find out more about visa requirements for all the countries we fly to at the IATA Travel Centre.
