Saudi postpones aviation licences

Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) has postponed awarding new carrier licenses until the end of this year as it needs more time to evaluate the bids, it said in an emailed statement yesterday. The winning bids were expected by the end of November. “(GACA) needs more time to choose the best operating models after it completes the analysis and evaluation of the bids that were received from the companies,” it said in the statement.
