|International vs local split||Yes|
Some suppliers confirmed local routing is not allowed via international aggregators, only aggregators that are established in Saudi Arabia may offer this to their clients.
Local Saudi aggregators may also not resell the local routes to other international aggregators. This means that we and our international suppliers can only offer international routing.
