Witnessed by the UK Secretary of State for Transport, Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, this signing supports future collaboration between CAAi and the DGCA, to help strengthen Kuwait’s aviation oversight capability through training and the provision of regulatory tools, to become a leading aviation regulator in the Middle East.

Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling said: “This new agreement is fantastic news for the UK and Kuwait and demonstrates our shared commitment to promoting higher standards of aviation safety. We remain committed to supporting Kuwait become a leading aviation regulator in the Middle East and boost safety levels in accordance with international standards.”



This MoU builds on the success of previous collaborations between CAAi and the Kuwait DGCA. In 2013, CAAi were appointed to review Kuwait’s aviation regulations and provide recommendations to update Kuwait’s regulatory framework in accordance with the international standards of ICAO and harmonised with EASA.

Ben Alcott, International Director for the CAA International Group said, “We are delighted to be in a position to continue working with the Kuwait DGCA. With the Kuwait air transport market expected to see some of the highest growth rates in the Middle East over the next few years, the UK CAA remains fully committed to supporting the Kuwait DGCA, promoting the highest standards in aviation oversight and regulation."
