With the resumption of international flights Monday from Saudi Arabia’s airports, a flight took off from Hail International Airport en route to Cairo International Airport for the first time since Saudi authorities imposed a temporary international travel ban in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, all precautionary and operational measures were taken to ensure the safety of passengers.

Saudi Arabia reopened its airports, seaports and land border crossings early on Monday, allowing its citizens to travel outside the kingdom as it lifted the 14-month-long travel ban imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The categories allowed to travel abroad include those who have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, those who received one dose at least two weeks prior to travel, those recovering from the virus within six months from the date of travel, and citizens under 18-years-old, who are provided with a travel insurance policy covering the risks of COVID-19 outside the kingdom before travel.
