Saudia to operate Jeddah-Al-Ula flights
FEB 17, 2015: Saudia will operate two flights weekly between Jeddah and Al-Ula from Feb. 26 as part of a strategic plan to expand its operations between the Kingdom’s cities.
Abdullah Al-Ajhar, EVP Public Relations, said the new flights would be operated on Thursdays and Saturdays, adding that it would help a large number of tourists visit Madain Saleh archeological sites.
The national carrier currently operates flights to 27 domestic airports to meet the requirements of growing passengers traveling between the Kingdom’s cities.
“We have allocated 70 percent of our flights for the domestic sector,” said Al-Ajhar said. Last year, Saudia carried 15.7 million passengers on 120,248 domestic flights, registering an increase of 987,636 passengers and 4,384 flights, compared to 2013.
