There are a number of airports in Kuwait. However, not all Kuwait airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest Kuwait airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Kuwait.

The State of Kuwait is a small constitutional monarchy on the coast of the Persian Gulf, enclosed by Saudi Arabia in the south and Iraq in the north. The name is a diminutive of an Arabic word meaning "fortress built near water." Majority of Kuwait's population lives in the coastal areas.

Kuwait consists mostly of desert, with little altitude difference. Kuwait is the only country in the world with no natural lake or water reservoir. It has nine islands, the largest one being Bubiyan, which is linked to the mainland by a concrete bridge (after the liberation in 1991 the island was converted into a military base and currently no civilians are allowed in). The islands are: Auhah Island, Bubiyan Island, Failaka Island, Kubbar Island, Miskan Island, Qaruh Island, Umm al Maradim Island, Umm an Namil Island, Warbah Island.

Kuwait enjoys a variable continental climate. Summers (April to October) are extremely hot and dry with temperatures reaching above 51 C (124 F) in Kuwait City. Winters (November to February) are cool with limited precipitation and temperature level dropping below 21 C (70 F). The spring season is cool and pleasant.

The major cities are the capital Kuwait, and Jahrah (further in the north-west, 30-minute drive from the capital). The main residential and business areas are Salmiya and Hawalli. The main industrial area is Shuwaikh which resides within the Al Asimah Governorate.

Kuwait is a small, rich, relatively open economy with proven crude oil reserves of 96 billion barrels - 10% of world reserves. Petroleum accounts for nearly half of GDP, 95% of export revenues, and 80% of government income. Kuwait's climate limits agricultural development. Consequently, with the exception of fish, it depends almost wholly on food imports. About 75% of potable water must be distilled or imported.

Kuwaiti citizens are a minority of those who reside in Kuwait. The government only rarely grants citizenship to non-citizens (who are generally referred to as expatriates). About 57% of the Kuwaiti population is Arab; Arab expatriates include a large group of stateless Arabs, locally known as Bidoon (an Arabic word meaning "without" and different from Bedouin), along with Egyptians, Lebanese and other Arabs. Other large groups of expatriates include Pakistanis, Indians, Bangladeshis and Filipinos. In 2003, more than 400,000 Indian nationals lived in Kuwait, making them the largest expatriate community in the oil-rich state. (airports)
