The Airbus jets are understood to be 9K-ANA (msn 89), 9K-ANB (msn 90), 9K-ANC (msn 101), and 9K-AND (msn 104) all of which are in storage in Kuwait while the B747 Combi is 9K-ADE (msn 27338) currently still operating sporadically. The aircraft were delivered new to Kuwait Airways in 1994/95.

According to the ch-aviation fleets module, 9K-ANA has 78,259 flight hours and 18,280 flight cycles, 9K-ANB 80,319 hours/18,575 cycles, 9K-ANC 80,099 hours/18,724 cycles, 9K-AND 80,717 hours/18,967 cycles and 9K-ADE only 15,016 hours and 6,149 cycles (as of April 30, 2018).

A number of spare engines and other parts are available for sale with the aircraft.
