Saudi Arabia to set up independent body to investigate air accidents

Saudi aviation authorities have decided to set up an independent body to investigate air accidents in the kingdom, Arab News has reported. According to the decision by the General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA), the new investigation body will be financially and administratively independent. "The new entity will be responsible for investigating plane crashes and other related accidents in general and will enjoy total freedom. The statutes for the new body and its functions, which are on par with international regulations on air accidents, are in place," said director general of GACA's Aircraft Investigation Office, Ibrahim Al-Kesshi.
