Saudi Arabia to resume some international flights Sept. 15

The Interior Ministry said a limited number of citizens and nonresidents will be eligible for flights entering and exiting the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia is easing some of its coronavirus-related travel restrictions to allow “exceptional categories” of its citizens and residents to fly in and out of the kingdom. 

In mid-March, the Saudi government suspended all international flights as part of efforts to curb the spread of the virus. Domestic flights resumed May 31, but international travel remained restricted.
