Saudi Arabia to restart domestic flights on Sunday

Posted 27 May 2020 · Add Comment

Saudi Arabia is to resume some domestic flights from Sunday as it eases restriction measures.

Sixty flights will resume each day in the first phase.

“The resumption of domestic flights will be phased, to cover all domestic destinations within two weeks,” regulator GACA said in a statement.

Local travel was suspended as part of measures to fight the spread of coronavirus on March 20. GACA said it will be working in coordination with airports, air carriers, and companies operating in the civil aviation sector to meet the demand in the local market.

“The authority completed its operational preparations to gradually lift the suspension of domestic flights, to ensure a safe travel journey for travellers through Saudi airports, while taking all necessary precautions and health measures,” the regulator said.

Saudi Arabia has reported total Covid-19 infections in the Kingdom as 76,726 and the death toll to 411.
