Saudi Arabia has launched a driverless flying taxi service to facilitate the transportation of pilgrims. This electric flying taxi will be used to serve passengers in the holy city of Mecca. Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, Chairman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation Board and Minister of Transport and Logistics, officially inaugurated the program on Wednesday.

The Minister of Transport and Logistics Services of Saudi Arabia said that this is the first time in the world that the Civil Aviation Authority has given a license to such a flying taxi. Haj pilgrims can visit Mina, Muzdalifa and Arafat Maidan in this electric flying taxi. But this year, this flying taxi will be used more for emergency services (transportation of goods and medicine).

The country’s General Authority of Civil Aviation Board claims that the use of air taxis will reduce the travel time of passengers. And this service will play an important role in special emergency moments.

The holy Hajj ceremony will begin on June 15. More than 1.5 million pilgrims from different countries have gathered in Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj.
