An arrow in a chemical equation defines the direction of the process of reactants (a substance that enters into a reaction), to products (or the end result of the reaction or equation). The arrow itself is read as 'yield' or 'produce'. A double-headed arrow indicates that the equation can also be true when reversed.

It indicates that the reaction can proceed in both directions. It could also mean that the reactions are in a dynamic equilibrium.
Looking at the other responses I think there is a need for clarification. If there is one line with a complete arrow at both ends then it is a reversible reaction. If there are two
A bi-directional arrow indicates that the reaction
