JEDDAH: The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) announced July 1 as the startup date of its Saudi Air Negation Services Company.
Faisal Alsugair, head of the Saudi Civil Aviation Holding Company, pointed out that the launching of Saudi Air Negation Services Company is in accordance with GACA board of directors’ resolution to transform the air navigational services sector into a company in early July of this year.
He said transforming the air navigation sector into a company aims to raise operating efficiency and to achieve financial independence and integration between strategic units, adding that all staff members at the air navigational sector are qualified Saudi young men who are highly efficient in air navigation.
Some have been trained at the Saudi Aviation Academy, while others have been sent to study abroad in countries, including New Zealand and Canada. They are by far the best in their chosen field in the region.
Alsugair stated that the next phase requires all air navigation employees to make every effort to ensure the success of the Air Navigation Services Company in order to develop its services and raise the performance levels efficiently and effectively to meet airspace user requirements.
He stressed that transforming this sector into a company comes in sync with Saudi Vision 2030, a vision that aims to develop the services provided and bolster the national economy.
