Pursuant to instructions from King Salman, Civil Aviation decided to launch air flights to hub airports in an effort to extend air travel services to all parts of Saudi Arabia.
A meeting was held with national carriers to explain the Civil Aviation plan to activate domestic lines that have no air lflight services. Hayel airport is selected as a hub airport to serve airports located in the northern region of Saudi Arabia. It will also serve as a gateway to international and regional airports. Depend upon the success of this pilot project, other projects will be launched in the southern and eastern regions of Saudi Arabia.
