Jazeera Airways has converted its Park & Fly facility in record time for free use by the Ministry of Health to perform the first drive-through Covid-19 virus tests in Kuwait.

 

Jazeera Airways’ design and engineering team reconfigured the facility to comply with the stringent requirements of the local health authorities.   

 

Speaking of the preparations for the centre, Jazeera Airways chairman, Marwan Boodai, said: “Our Park & Fly facility was an ideal location and scale to build the testing center and equip it to the needs of the Ministry of Health. We are very thankful to be able to contribute in every way possible to the tremendous efforts made by the State of Kuwait to combat the virus. Our assets and human resources are at the disposal of Kuwait.”

 

A second drive-through testing facility is being constructed as well by the Jazeera Airways team at the Jaber Al-Ahmad national stadium for the Ministry of Health to operate.
