Airlines invited to apply for licenses to fly from Dammam airport in boost for Saudi aviation sector

Airlines are being asked to apply for carrier licenses to operate out of King Fahd International Airport in Dammam in a further boost to Saudi Arabia’s aviation industry.

The licenses will be issued for domestic as well as international flights from the airport, as the Kingdom aims to elevate its competitiveness in the aviation market as well as boost the quality of services provided to travelers.

Companies interested in acquiring licenses can apply through official letters addressed to the General Authority for Civil Aviation.

The winning firms can choose the domestic routes from KFIA to other airports in the Kingdom, and they will also be able to operate global flights in accordance with the international agreements concluded by GACA.

The step falls in line with the aviation sector’s goal of serving 330 million passengers and covering more than 250 international destinations by 2030.
