Saudi Arabia permits foreigners to fly out of kingdom

RIYADH, December 28, 2020

Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has granted permission to foreign airlines to operate charter flights to transport non-Saudi passengers outside the kingdom, said a report.
The charter flights will be allowed to operate at Saudi airports on the condition that the crew of a landing plane at the Kingdom’s airports do not leave their plane, and that they do not physically have contact with the ground/operation staff of the arrival airport, said a report in Saudi Gazette.
The authority clarified that these instructions do not include the countries where the new mutated strain of coronavirus has appeared, the report said.
Last Sunday, Saudi Arabia had closed its land, air and sea ports for one week amid reports of the appearance of a new mutated strain of coronavirus in a number of European countries, as part of  precautionary measures seeking to ensure the health and safety of citizens.
