Saudi Arabia announces initiative to support civil aviation sector


The Saudi Civil Aviation Authority has announced its initiative to prepare a framework that would facilitate international travel.

The initiative aims to unify procedures to facilitate the work associated with international travel by establishing a digital source that provides the latest information and developments, and identifies entry requirements for all participating countries, according to the General Authority of the Civil Aviation (GACA) of Saudi Arabia. .

The initiative was highlighted during the opening of the three-day Future Aviation Forum, organized by GACA, Xinhua news agency reported.

GACA Chairman Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al-Duailej noted that the pandemic has exposed the low level of coordination between countries.

During the forum, Saudi Transport and Logistics Minister Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser revealed that the kingdom will increase its investments in the transport and logistics sector by more than $100 billion.

It also aims to carry more than 300 million passengers and five million tons of cargo and connect with 250 destinations across the world by 2030, he said.

A total of 60 countries with more than 2,000 participants participate in the forum.
