This video is taken from aboard a Kuwait Airways A310-300

Still searching for the airport ...

Other than it looking like an Indian airport I have no idea about the airline or airport.

Around the 40 second mark there is a quick shot of the engine and you get a glimpse of a bit of the livery on the cowling, maybe someone can guess the airline from that.

Agree that it looks like Kuwait Airways, they serve a number of airlines in India (listed below) so it could be one of these I would guess. Not Delhi or Mumbai though as I have flown into both and they do not look like the airport in the video nor Hyderabad as it's not located on the coast.

Ahmedabad (Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport)
Chennai (Chennai International Airport)
Delhi (Indira Gandhi International
Kochi (Cochin International Airport)
Mumbai (Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport)
Trivandrum
Hyderabad, India (Begumpet Airport)

As FlySSC said, it definitely is an A310 of Kuwait Airways.


It could be Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, Thiruvanaathapuram or Ahmedabad. (These are the Indian destinations Kuwait Airways serves).

Perhaps an Indian A.netter would know!

EDIT: I see you bet me to it, BritPilot!

Not at all ! I've never been there. But I know my geography ... and :

- the plane is clearly an A310-300
- the blue stripes on the engines clearly show Kuwait Airways.

According to the landscape and vegetation, it's definately not in the Middle East but more likely in Asia.
On the apron, an Air India aircraft is visible (an A310 I believe) and what seems to be an Oman Air B737.

According to the cities served by KU and Oman Air and the presence of an Air India plane it is very like ly to be in India. Definately not DEL, BOM, MAA, or HYD ... so ... the solution becomes easy to find !
