Such achievements include the Kingdom’s scoring of 94.4% in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) safety audit report and ranking 7th among Group of Twenty (G20) members in aviation safety. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has also jumped to the 13th position on the air connectivity index of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in 2023, up from the 27th position in 2019.
