Saudi aviation authority allows foreigners to leave Kingdom

RIYADH, Dec 28 (INP): The aviation authority of Saudi Arabia has allowed the airlines to resume flights to transport foreigners out of the kingdom.

According to a report of the state television, the decision excludes countries dealing with the new variant of Covid-19 and crew members of flights landing in the kingdom are not allowed to leave their planes.

It is worth mentioning here that a week ago, Saudi Arabia suspended all international flights, citing a lack of information on the new strain.

The move followed a decision in the U.K. to impose a lockdown in London and southeast England to control the fast-spreading strain of the coronavirus at the time.
