BEIRUT: Beirut is the most popular tourist destination among Kuwaitis this summer in the wake of instability resulting from the uprisings in the Arab world, an official at Kuwaiti Airport has said.

In remarks published Thursday by the Kuwait newspaper Al-Qabas Zamil said there are four daily flights between Beirut and Kuwait.
Zamil said Kuwait will also mount four extra flights to Dubai. Zamil pointed out that Kuwait International Airport will also witness a "big jump" in passenger traffic this year.
