End of Saudi Arabian B747SP ?

End of Saudi Arabian B747SP ?

According to a report on cargofacts.com a new Saudi Arabian aviation regulation will require the country’s carriers to retire all aircraft over 20 years of age.

"Intended originally to cover Hajj flights, which often saw charter companies bring in very old aircraft to transport the millions of pilgrims flying into Mecca, the ruling also extends to cargo aircraft."

The question is; does this also apply to the Saudi Government 747SP's as well ?

Saudi Government still operates 2 747SP's today
