Saudi Arabia’s General Civil Aviation Authority(GACA) has in a tweet said there is still no specific date for the return of international flights in Saudi Arabia.
GACA “stressed that there is no specific date yet for the resumption of international flights; the decision will be taken based on the evaluation of the Saudi competent authorities. It urged everyone to take information updates solely from official sources,” said the Tweet in Arabic on Wednesday morning.
Saudi Arabia suspended international flights in mid-March to slow the spread of the new coronavirus.
Since then, the country has emerged from a strict lockdown and travel restrictions between cities have been eased. In June, domestic air travel saw 750,000 passengers transit through Saudi airports.
On Tuesday, 34 new COVID-19-related deaths were reported in the Kingdom bringing the death toll to 2,557.
