For the first time, Hajj pilgrims will see flying taxis and drones this year in Saudi Arabia.

The kingdom has planned to test flying taxis and drones for smoother and safer journey of Muslim visitors from across the globe this season.

Saleh al-Jasser, the kingdom’s Minister of Transport and Logistic Services said that flying taxis and drones will undergo testing during this year’s Hajj season. The test flights will ensure seamless operations and provide our guests with maximum comfort during their stay in the gulf state.

Saleh, in an interview with Al Arabiya, has announced the use of flying taxis and drones. He said that there was a tough competition among various transportation companies to provide a practical product in the coming years.

The transport minister emphasised that the government was thoroughly examining its integration as a permanent aspect of future facilitation initiatives.

Saleh al-Jasser said it was vital for his department to introduce these new technologies for the benefit of the Hajj pilgrims.

He added that indeed it’s important for us to take the lead and ensure we fully capitalise on the potential of these innovative services, and that the Hajj season derives the utmost benefits from them.
