Airline agrees to pay damages and costs, but refuses admission of liability
Kuwait Airways is slated to start its flights in Vienna in June.
A court in Frankfurt ruled in November that Kuwait Airways was within its rights to refuse service to an Israeli citizen.
Here in liberal, democratic Germany a foreign company had perpetrated a straightforward act of discrimination against an individual on no other basis than his citizenship in the Jewish state.
The same judge ruled last week that it was legal and just for Kuwait Airways to bar an Israeli passenger from flying on their planes.
The law forbids any discrimination on the grounds of the citizenship or residence of the customers.
A video uploaded to Facebook went viral after an Israeli-Arab was barred from getting on Kuwait Airways flight because of his Israeli passport.
