Saudi Arabia, US Look Into Applying Pre-Screening on Passengers


Riyadh-Head of the General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) Abdulhakeem al-Tamimi discussed with Acting Administrator of the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Huban A. Gowadia ways to apply pre-screening on travelers to the United States through King Khalid Airport in Riyadh and King Abdul Aziz Airport in Jeddah.



The meeting tackled mechanisms of applying the pre-screening program on travelers to the United States in order for citizens and residents to travel easily.

“We discussed the possibility of applying the pre-screening program at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah first due to its well-founded infrastructure and at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh,” Tamimi said, adding that further meetings will be held on this subject to prepare the necessary infrastructure to achieve it.

Tamimi stressed the importance of developing cooperation and relations with the US Federal Aviation Administration in all areas of civil aviation, particularly regarding safety, security and modern technologies.

He also emphasized the importance of training the staff as the Saudi delegation discussed with the US side the mechanism to share expertise and distinctive experiences in addition to knowing the needs and modern techniques that will help raise the level of performance and maintain the security of airports.

The efforts GACA is exerting to provide safety and security of aviation are highly commended by the world countries.

GACA has put so much effort and has recruited qualified staff to work in the field of aviation, and it has also provided the latest equipment and systems used in the field of aviation protection and security.
