KUWAIT CITY, Kuwait – Qatar Airways is partnering with the Embassy of the United States in Kuwait to celebrate Discover America Week 2016. Through 3 November 2016, Qatar Airways will offer travellers from Kuwait 20 per cent off all-inclusive return fares to the USA with a complimentary third piece of luggage and double bonus Q-miles.

The recent Travel and Tourism Seminar held at the Sheraton Hotel Kuwait provided travellers with inspiration for places to visit and explore in the United States. The event was officially opened by the American Ambassador to Kuwait, His Excellency Lawrence R. Silverman and Qatar Airways Country Manager, Mr. Fadi Hijazin. More than 60 media, corporate and trade professionals attended the event.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President of Commercial Middle East, Africa and Pakistan, Mr. Ehab Amin said: “With eight departure times a day from Kuwait City to 10 destinations in the United States, Qatar Airways enables residents in Kuwait to connect to some of the most vibrant cities in the world.
