I am not exaggerating. I still in Saudia and that things are happening now. Thank God in Riyadh not too many incidents yet. But don't worry I am planning to leave ASAP. There is a lack of respect here. Celebrating that foreign are leaving with a bunch of experience and hard working in Saudia a plenty of years is disgusting.

Is it actually true that most if not all Saudia pilots are Saudis? I find this hard to believe.

Barring a handful on all fleets, yes. I would wager that SAUDIA has less than 100 expats on all fleets total today.
But I’m not too sure of the exact number

urban miths?? I think at this stage there are at least 30 pilots taking the airline to court...and I believe many of them already got first ruling in their favour. Brace yourself because the airline will have to pay a lot of money and will have to reemploy them ..luckly the labour law works very well in saudi


I also hope that a few corrupt managers will go to jail freeing a beautiful airline from the people that are stopping it from becoming a world airline.

The way they play with foreigners is unbelievable.
I don't think they will need pilots again because Saudia cannot grow more. The only alternative to be 5 stars would be paying to Skytrax a lot of money. ​​​​​​​Saudia have forced us to move to Riyadh having 20 ◊ 10, but this year it's over. Living in this hopeless land and cannot go home 10 days every month, it's depressing.

as soon as the court cases are over they will be posted here so you will stop trying di disguise reality. The foreigners terminated are sueing the s.... out of saudia and guess what, also the crimes committed will come out, .....black mail for personal gain is punishable by the law with a good 10 years in jail !!

I’m still not getting it. What did Saudia do wrong? What exactly the violation if any?

Considering that there are “30 pilots” taking this court case, I find it strange that no one apart from “truejoboffer” has heard anything about it.

Expats redundancies are ongoing. Some Captains got the notification. There is no end in sight.

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabiaís General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) launched a new initiative on Tuesday to localize jobs in the air transport sector.The initiative, announced in a statement on Twitter, aims to localize 10,000 jobs in 28 specialized professions across the sector by 2023.

It comes as a product of GACAís cooperation with the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.

Targeted jobs include pilots, co-pilots, runway and ground services coordinators, flight directors, flight attendants, air traffic controllers, supervisors, some maintenance technicians, aircraft catering, passenger handlers, cargo and others.

This step comes as part of efforts to enhance the aviation sector further and reduce unemployment in the Kingdom to 7 percent, as per the objectives of the Vision 2030 reform plan.

All airlines, maintenance and operation contractors, as well as service providers in all airports across the country, were directed to begin implementing the initiative.

GACA has designated a team to monitor and follow up on the initiativeís implementation on a monthly basis, prepare reports and refer them to the authority.
The news comes as Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries and the Prince Sultan Aviation Academy announced the signing of a joint cooperation training agreement with the US Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology.The aim is to exchange training experiences, qualify national cadres and enhance the quality of training in aircraft maintenance.

Ibrahim Al-Omar, director general of Saudia airline, said the agreement would enhance the efficiency of technical training at the carrier.

Unemployment reached its highest level in the second quarter of 2020 ó 15.4 percent. The General Authority for Statistics also reported that the jobless rate among Saudi women reached 31.4 percent.

The total labor force consists of 3.1 million citizens and 10.5 million non-Saudis. The strategy of nationalizing jobs is therefore crucial in reducing Saudi unemployment.

In 2018, the Ministry of Labor and Social Development issued a decision to replace expatriate workers with Saudis in 12 key economic activities.

In 2020, the Kingdom announced its plans to nationalize 20 percent of engineering jobs and 30 percent of accounting jobs.
