The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has called on the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to lift the ban imposed on Kuwait Airways' direct flights to the US, reports Kuna.

DGCA urged US officials to take in to consideration security measures taken for this purpose.

The delegation also asked TSA to coordinate with DGCA on enhancing the implementation of security systems, and the start of implementing procedures of the US Border Clearance at the support terminal.

The delegation invited the US officials to visit Kuwait International Airport in mid-August to be appraised of measures in order to lift the ban on direct flights.
