Fly to Kuwait with British Airways to find one of the Middle East’s most striking modern city-states. Flights to Kuwait City take you to the vibrant tip of miles of desert planes, so there is little to see outside the capital, but its museums, shopping malls and beaches make it a varied destination in itself.
There are still traces of the Iraqi invasion in the 1990s, with the city’s Bait Al Watani museum dedicated to the events of the Gulf War, and protests are common but usually peaceful. For those who like heady heights, the Kuwait Towers are still one of the best place to for views over the Persian Gulf, with a restaurant and several cafés as well as a viewing sphere.

All flights include the choice of four cabins onboard, each embodying British Airways’ unique in-flight character – World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First.
