The President of the General Authority for Civil Aviation, Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al-Dawilj, has said that the new policy on air travel will lead to further development in this field in the coming years.

The new policy will be formally tabled in the General Assembly of the 41st International Civil Aviation Organization, which will then be presented for approval by the member states.

According to the report, this new framework will facilitate international travel, while at present millions of people are discouraged from booking their flights due to confusion about travel requirements.

A recent study by You Gov, an international British public opinion firm, found that a significant number of international travelers these days are confused about health information, and this makes them reluctant to travel abroad. It is also discouraging.
