Saudi Arabia: Airspace Changes Announced

Arab News, 15 July 2022: Saudi Arabia’s General Civil Aviation Authority has announced airspace changes have been approved.

Under the changes, all carriers can use the Kingdom’s airspace so long as the Authority’s overflight requirements are met.

No date for the change coming into force was given.

The change has been approved as part of the Kingdom’s efforts to meet its obligations under the Chicago Convention of 1944.

This states non-discrimination between civil aircrafts used in international air navigation.
