17 November 2021


 The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) confirmed that it is moving forward in enabling air freight and setting up legislation that contributes to creating more investment and economic opportunities for this promising sector.


In his participation on the sidelines of the Dubai Airshow 2021, the Assistant to the President for Safety and Aviation Standards, Captain Suleiman Al-Muhaimidi, said that the smooth transportation of goods by air is one of the most important axes of the aviation sector strategy.


He pointed out in a session devoted to air cargo needs that the announced strategy of GACA, emanating from the National Strategy for Transport and Logistics Services, will place the Saudi aviation sector first in the Middle East by 2030.


GACA  intends to double the cargo capacity to 4.5 million tons by the year 2030 compared to less than one million tons in 2019, which is an ambitious endeavor that will contribute to creating unprecedented investment opportunities.


GACA continues to rebuild its regulatory frameworks and adopt digital transformation to enhance the efficiency and prosperity of safe and effective air freight operations even during crises. The session called upon the civil aviation sector to embrace digital transformation, adopt collaborative work, and enable new investment models to create a globally cohesive sector.
