Saudi Arabia

Region: Middle East


Aviation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is dominated by the national carrier, Saudi Arabian Airlines, which once enjoyed monopoly status. However, more recently the sector has been opened to competition with the entrance of privately owned LCC flynas and FSCs SaudiGulf Airlines and Nesma Airlines (Saudi Arabia). The country’s main international gateway is the Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport, which is also the major hub for Saudia and its charter subsidiaries, Al Bayraq and Saudia Private Aviation.

The General Authority of Civil Aviation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is responsible for regulating the country’s aviation sector while also providing air navigation services.
