Kuwait Airport App

Posted by Mark

This is a very simple app which allows you to track incoming and departing flights at the Kuwait Airport. Back in the old days (I’m talking around 2001-2002 here) the Kuwait Airport website was terrible (kinda like now) but it had one very cool feature. When you accessed the airport website from a PDA browser, it wouldn’t take you to the regular website but instead take to a very simple white background site with just a list of incoming flights on it. It was PERFECT! A lot of times when I needed to check the arrivals list it would usually be when I’m on my way to the airport and from a mobile device. That simplified version of the website made things very practical and I was actually really surprised the airport website had that feature. Sadly, this cool feature disappeared years ago without a trace.

Which brings me to this app. It’s fast and focused. It’s actually the fastest launching app on my iPhone right now. So fast I actually had a VERY difficult time capturing a screenshot of the splash screen. Once the app loads it downloads the list of arriving and departing flights and you’re set. You can then scroll down the lists or search for a specific flight number or airline.

There are no negatives other than the fact the app isn’t free. You can download it from the App Store by searching for Kuwait Airport or by following this [Link]

    This app is completely inaccurate most of the time. You should really try things out before recommending them on your blog. I’ve had this app for over a year and its rarely ever accurate, utter garbage. Use “Flight Board” its a much better app and works with almost all the world’s airports.

      Not sure how the app is completely inaccurate. Maybe you were using a different one. This one pulls information directly from the airport website so if the data in the app is incorrect then the data on the kuwait airport website is also incorrect.

      One way of testing the accuracy if you want is to load up the app and compare it to the results on the airport website. They’re a perfect match.

      So the app works and is very accurate hence why I’ve mentioned it.

      One more thing, you say that you’ve had the app for over a year but the App was released on 21 November 2011.

    So should I buy it or not? If it’s just like the kuwait airport website but simplified then it’s worth it I guess
