Saudi: First Phase of Saudisation of Licensed Aviation Professions Begins

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development announced the start of implementing the first phase of Saudisation in the licensed aviation professions in all regions of the Kingdom on Wednesday, March 15. The decision comes into force at the end of the grace period given earlier by the ministry to Saudise these professions.

The first phase covers four professions, such as air controller, air transporter, ground movement coordinator, and co-pilot. These include 60 percent Saudization in the profession of the fixed-wing pilot and 50 percent in the profession of a flight attendant. This decision applies to all private sector establishments operating in the labour market and employing five or more workers in the specified aviation professions. Saudi staff in the targeted professions are required to obtain professional accreditation from the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA).

This move comes as a continuation of the ministry’s efforts aimed at providing a stimulating and productive work environment for male and female citizens, increasing their level of participation in the labour market, and enhancing their contribution to the economic system.
