GACA inks agreement with Uber

The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has entered into an agreement with Uber for dedicated Uber pick-up and drop-off locations. These points will be at GACA managed airports across the Kingdom over next three months.

The agreement will also see GACA and Uber work together closely to provide travellers with a wider range of transportation options. Uber is known for its technology advancements with some built-in features such as driver verification, scheduled rides, and ETA (estimated time of arrival) sharing.

Uber has already on-boarded more than 80,000 Saudi driver-partners on the app over the past year – a number that is expected to grow as agreements with the likes of GACA, and RAC (Riyadh Airport Company) earlier this month, are signed. The signing also comes at an important juncture in the summer, with high footfall at Saudi airports expected as a result of the Hajj Pilgrimage and holidays later this year.
