Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the General Authority of Civil Aviation of Saudi Arabia (GACA) have updated their bilateral air services agreement (ASA).

This update eliminates restrictions on routes, passenger numbers, and aircraft types, allowing for free operations between the two countries, including the use of fifth freedom rights.

Moreover, both countries will conduct regular exchanges and technical cooperation in various fields such as civil aviation infrastructure, operations, digitization of the passenger experience, safety, and security.

Changi International Airport in Singapore is currently working on the construction of Terminal 5, which will increase its annual passenger processing capacity significantly, from the current capacity of 50 million to a combined total of 90 million across all terminals upon completion. In Saudi Arabia, an investment of 100 billion US dollars in projects including the construction of King Salman International Airport is expected to create an annual processing capacity of 120 million passengers.
