JEDDAH: Saudia Airlines has added two new flights between the capital Riyadh and Al-Ula to meet the growing demand for travel to historic governorate.
Al-Ula is witnessing rapid growth as a tourist destination and a cultural and heritage site that attracts a large number of tourists both inside and outside the Kingdom.
The new flights are scheduled for Sunday and Tuesday. The flight departs King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh at 7 a.m. and arrives at Prince Abdul Majid Airport at 8.45 a.m. Departure flights leave at 9.25 a.m. and arrive in Riyadh at 10.55 a.m.
Saudia already runs a number of flights from Riyadh to Al-Ula and from Jeddah to Al-Ula.
The Royal Commission for Al-Ula (RCU) welcomed the additional flights.
“RCU is committed to making Al-Ula more accessible, and these new flights represent another important step toward achieving our vision to share this special place of heritage with the world,” the commission said.
