Kuwait Airways has grounded its fleet of five Airbus A300 to conduct an inspection of the jets, the state-owned carrier said on Thursday.

The Gulf Arab carrier did not specify what prompted the suspension, other than that Airbus had asked the airline to conduct a check-up on its A300 planes after Kuwait Airways “submitted notes” to the manufacturer.

“The procedure has resulted in delaying some flights until the check-up is done and this type is back to flying,” Adel Broslay, Kuwait Airways’ director of public relations and media, said in a statement.

The A300 is a short- to medium-range widebody jet liner.

Broslay said Kuwait Airways, which has a fleet of 17 planes, could lease aircraft if the maintenance works were delayed.
