GACA gives employees at Madinah airport 30 days to decide on contracts

Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has given its employees at Prince Muhammad International Airport in Madinah 30 days to decide whether they want to transfer their contracts to the airport's new operator or seek a secondment for a period of three years, Saudi Gazette has reported. The move aims to solve the crisis that erupted following its implementation of the decision to privatize the airport, GACA said. This is the third time GACA has given a grace period to some 196 employees at the airport who had turned down the previous options put forward by GACA and taken the matter to court.
