Tariq Abduljabbar, deputy to the president of theGeneral Authority of Civil Aviation(GACA) in Saudi Arabia, said that Sulaiman Bin Abdulaziz Al Rajhi Charitable Foundation and Turkey’s TAV Airports will partner to develop and operate airports in Qassim and Hail.

These partnerships, he explained, will be based on the build-transfer-operate business model, which is considered the most appropriate one to upgrade airport operations, Saudi Gazette reported.

He added that these partnerships are part of the authority’s efforts to upgrade the services presented at airports, because they aim to provide excellent services to passengers and boost the quality of the existing ones.
