Abstract: The aim of this study was to explore the impact of strategic learning on the dynamic capabilities of human resources in airline companies in Kuwait. The study sample consisted of all managers working at different levels in these airline companies. To collect the data, a questionnaire-based survey was used and the model was empirically tested using 110 responses from the airline companies in Kuwait and applying multiple regression tests using SPSS software. It was found that strategic learning had a significant impact on the dynamic capabilities of the human resources workforce in airline companies in Kuwait with regards to the four dimensions studied. Based on the study results, the researchers recommended that managers and decision makers in the airline industry in Kuwait should have the ability through various strategies to seize opportunities from companies that show great importance within the market because of their ability to increase the market share which was in turn reflected by an enhancement of their competitive position.
