Kuwait Airways .... Privatization The Way Ahead

Finally, the government of Kuwait has decided to provide the legal framework for the restructuring of Kuwait Airways as a precursor to its privatisation (read full story). The PrivComm has recommended the restructuring to the government despite the broad expressions of interest in the airline.

The recommendation does not come as a surprise, the airline has several issues ranging from chronic loss making over the last couple of decades. Staffing issues including numbers and productivity, their staff went on strike a week back for better wages. On top of that the airline is being investigated by the Government for corruption.

At last, the project is on the right track, how long the restructuring effort will take is unknown yet, but it will not be easy and probably painful.

Interesting times are ahead, as another GCC airline restructure.
