The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has issued its report on Saudi Arabia’s international and domestic airports performance for March 2022.
King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Tabuk, and Turaif Airport ranked first in the report.
GACA has followed the principle of transparency when evaluating the sector’s performance, which is divided into three categories, starting with international airports, where the number of passengers exceeds 6 million passengers annually.
King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh ranked first with a commitment rate of 82 percent, while Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Madinah came in second with a commitment rate of 80 percent, followed by Dammam’s King Fahd International Airport with a commitment rate of 64 percent, while King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah came in fourth with a commitment rate of 55 percent.
In the second category of international airports with less than 6 million passengers annually, Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Tabuk ranked first with a commitment rate of 100 percent, surpassing competing airports in the total average of waiting times for the departure and arrival flight, and in the third category for domestic airports, Turaif Airport came in first with a score of 100 percent.
GACA relies on fourteen basic criteria to measure performance, most notably, the time spent in Chechnya-in procedure, passports, and customs area. This is in addition to criteria related to people with disability and several other in accordance with international best practices.
