Saudi Arabia was officially elected chairman of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization’s (ACAO) Aviation Security Committee for the second time in a row.
This achievement reaffirms the Kingdom’s vital role, in addition to its excellent efforts in dealing with air transport data at the “regional and worldwide” levels.
This reflects the Kingdom’s prestigious and recognised international standing in numerous international forums relating to civil aviation.
Saudi Arabia, for its part, has made significant efforts to promote global aviation security by founding the ACAO’s programmes and projects, as well as sending Saudi specialists to work in specialised organisations.
It is home to the ICAO Middle East Regional Safety Oversight Organization (MENA RSOO) and the ICAO Middle East Collaborative Program on Civil Aviation Security’s permanent headquarters (CASP-MID).
The Kingdom has been a member of ACAO, which has a membership of 21 countries, since its creation in 1996.
The Arab Civil Aviation Organization, which is specialised and linked with the League of Arab States, is also regarded an Arab organisation. Its goal is to strengthen collaboration and coordination between countries in the field of civil aviation.
