Saudi Press Agency reported that 756,644 passengers had departed on 9,758 flights from the Kingdom’s airports in that time.

GACA said it was gradually resuming domestic flights, with the aim of ensuring safe travel for passengers through Saudi airports, while taking all necessary precautions and health measures.
