Breaking: Has Kuwait Airways' CEO resigned?

Kuwait Airways' CEO has resigned, less than six months after being appointed to lead the ailing carrier, say a number sources familiar with the matter.

This will be the third time the country's national carrier will be forced to look for a chief executive this year.

Ebrahim Abdullah Al-Khuzam was appointed in May, after former CEO Rasha al Roumi resigned in April citing corruption in a letter.

Kuwait Airways has been attempting to turn fortunes around become profitable for eventual privatisation by 2019. However, efforts have been hampered by a spate of resignations in recent months, mirroring the political climate in the country which saw its government resign yesterday, less than a year after it was formed.
