If a passenger’s body temperature is above 38 ° Celsius, he will be barred from entering the Kingdom’s airports.
This is in line with the health protocols prepared by competent health authorities, SPA quoted the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) as stressing on Monday.
GACA’s assertion comes within the precautionary health measures taken by it at all the 28 airports in Saudi Arabia.
Before the resumption of domestic flights in the kingdom on Sunday May, 31, the GACA has issued a traveler’s guide. It includes the precautionary measures at airports and the safety rules passengers will have to follow.
Travelers are also required to disclose their medical information, especially if they are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, when booking flights and electronic payments are the preferred mode.
Ticket outlets at airports will remain closed to limit contact between people, GACA said.
Passengers also will need to arrive at airports 2 hours before departure, go through a thermal check, sterilize their hands before entrance and must wear masks and gloves at all times.
Only 1 piece of carry-on luggage is allowed per person and everyone must maintain a safe distance at all times, guided by special stickers on the floor. Accompanying travelers to airports is limited to those helping senior citizens and people with disabilities, GACA added.
