Saudi Arabia is set to ease its suspension on international flights from 06:00 on Tuesday 15th September, after nearly six months of an air travel ban aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus.
The Kingdom will end some restrictions on air, land and sea transport for its citizens from tomorrow. From 1st January 2021, all restrictions are set to be lifted. Saudi Arabia suspended all international flights in March this year.
Gulf citizens and non-Saudis with valid residency permits or visas will be allowed to enter the Kingdom from Tuesday, provided they are not infected, according to Saudi state media.
Saudi Arabia is one of the Middle East region’s largest aviation markets and has so far managed to keep itself afloat with domestic services.
