Minister: Riyadh-based New Airport and National Carrier in Pipeline

Minister of Transport and Logistics Eng. Saleh Al-Jasser said that the National Strategy for Transport and Logistics aims to establish a new airport and a new national carrier in the capital city of Riyadh.

The focus of Saudi Arabian Airlines will be in Jeddah, he said while emphasizing that the strategy aims to have 250 new destinations and provide transportation of 330 million passengers.

Attending the “In the Picture” program on Rotana Khalijia Channel, Al-Jasser said that the Land Bridge Project is receiving attention from Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. “An international consortium will be assigned to implement this project, which will make a qualitative leap in the logistics sector,” he said.

The minister said that the first passenger service of the North Train will start from Al-Qurayyat by the end of this month, and it would be instrumental in having the rail connectivity reach up to the Jordanian borders. Citizens can transport their cars via the train for the first time, he pointed out.
