All precautionary measures were taken aboard the 15-hour flight which arrived at the King Salman Air Force Base n Riyadh.

The airlift was carried out by the air medical evacuation department of the health services at the Ministry of Defence following the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia
