As of March 1, Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) will be offering additional flights to and from Sharurah Airport in the KSA.
Following approvals by Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), SAUDIA will operate two round-trip flights to King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh and to King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, bringing the total to four flights per week.
This development highlights GACA’s commitment to developing airports and boosting connectivity for different regions of the Kingdom. GACA’s main aim is to connect Saudi Arabia with an integrated air network and raise the level of competitiveness, thus creating a balance between supply and demand in the air transport market.
The news also complements GACA’s programmes to stimulate flight growth in many of the Kingdom’s airports, and in return, put in place the necessary measures for low-traffic airports to heighten growth rates in air and passenger traffic.
Dedicated to improving the KSA’s aviation sector, GACA is busy developing an international and domestic airports network to accommodate demand, as well as the ever-growing number of travellers in various airports throughout the country.
