21 May 2020

H E Dr Ahmed Mohammed Al Futaisi, Minister of Transport, said that domestic aviation will return first before international flights and there is no specific date for the return of air traffic.  

“The aviation sector needs a long period to return to the way it was. We are working to achieve the necessary conditions and controls in preparation for the return of air traffic,” he said.  

He said that plan is to continue reopening some activities. “We will continue to reopen activities to reduce economic burden while monitoring the implementation of all health measures,”  Dr Futaisi said. 

“We will not hesitate to close activities that do not adhere to the implementation of health regulations,” he added.
