Saudi Arabia launches 'Road to Makkah' program

Saudi Arabia has initiated a special project named "Road to Makkah" to simplify the immigration and customs procedure of Hajj pilgrims. This program has been introduced in Bangladesh among some other Muslim countries. International affairs analysts have said that it is a successful breakthrough of the Foreign Ministry of Bangladesh.

The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) is participating in the Makkah Road initiative for the 1440 Haj season, by facilitating all of the Guests of Al Rahman Procedures and by reducing their processing time. The countries that are included in the initiative are Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Tunisia, Saudi Gazette reported.

GACA's role in this intuitive includes: allocating halls for the reception of pilgrims arriving from their points of origin and receiving them in each of King Abdulaziz Internat-ional Airport in Jeddah and Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz Interna-tional Airport in Madinah, scheduling flights for the initiative and work on the distribution of flight times throughout the duration of the initiative.

It is worth noting that the initiative aims to facilitate the pilgrim flights and benefit more than 225,000 pilgrims during the 1440 Haj season. It also reflects the great attention given to the pilgrims by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman.

Furthermore, it shows keenness to improve the service quality through this initiative, which was launched by the leadership as part of the Kingdom's vision 2030 programs.
