The Kuwait Airways Company was formed in 1954 during a time of rapid prosperity for its nation. Kuwait Airways initially served a limited network of Abadan, Beirut, Damascus and Jerusalem. In its second year, the fledgling carrier was facing economic hardship, and the government of Kuwait took a 50% interest in the airline, subsequently doubling the company"s capital. The government later increased its shareholding to 100% in 1962.Â In the 1960s, the national carrier rapidly expanded its route map and also modernized its fleet. In 1990, most of Kuwait Airways Corporation"s assets are lost in the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Following the destruction of its premises and 42 of its aircraft, the airline was relaunched. During the Iranâ€“Iraq War, Kuwait Airways was the target of two hijackings. Since 2008, the company was being restructured in preparation for privatization. In 2010, the company was half privatized.
