Second plane barred from Saudi airspace
A Shaheen Air Flight was denied entry for failing to meet the safety standards set by the Saudi government
A second airplane was barred from entering Saudi airspace on Friday for not having the required documents allowing it into the Kingdom’s skies, Al Arabiya reported citing authorities.
A Shaheen Air Flight was denied entry for failing to meet the safety standards set by the Saudi government, although the Pakistani carrier had reportedly applied for the necessary documents in advance but their request was rejected.
The Boeing 767 is reportedly registered in Jordan and is on loan to Shaheen Air. The plane’s registration bans it from entering European airspace, Al Arabiya reported.
The Saudi General Authority of Civil Aviation said the safety of Saudi airspace remains a top priority and will not allow any violations of protocol or regulations.
