Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) is scheduled to organize the third edition of the Future Aviation Forum 2024 (FAF 2024) on May 20-22 in Riyadh.
The FAF 2024 will be organized under the patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud.

It is set to attract more than 5,000 international experts from the aviation industry, leaders of international airlines, and officials from aviation authorities in participating countries.

The FAF 2024 will discuss global aviation issues, air transportation, the development of environmental sustainability in the civil aviation sector, enabling advanced air transport, and enhancing global connectivity.

It will also bring together the elite of heads of states, CEOs of international airlines, manufacturers, airport executives, and industry leaders to shape the future of international air transport.

The second edition of the forum witnessed the participation of 60 countries, the signing of 52 agreements and memoranda of understanding, the holding of 116 bilateral meetings, and the launch of several important policies and strategies for the civil aviation sector.
