International flights to Saudi Arabia are to resume from May 17 along with the opening of all international airports in the country.

According to a report in the Saudi Gazette, the same was confirmed by the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) of Saudi Arabia.

In a circular issued to the authority, the aviation entity nformed all airlines operating from the Saudi airports about the change of the date mentioned in an earlier circular for allowing Saudi citizens to travel abroad, as well as the complete lifting of the suspension of international flights, and the opening of the Kingdom’s airports.

The move comes into effect from 1:00am on May 17, 2020.

However, the international flights coming in from the countries that the authority has decided to suspend to travel to and from, would not be allowed to fly into Saudi Arabia. This would be mostly due to the outbreak of pandemic in the concerned country.
