Saudi Airlines announced the list of destinations that will resume its flights from May 17, after about 14 months of stopping international travel and restricting domestic travel to prevent Corona.
Saudi Airlines said it was ready to operate flights to 71 stations out of 95 stations, including 28 domestic and 43 international destinations, starting May 17.
According to a list announced by the company for its international destinations, the list included 12 Arab destinations: “Abu Dhabi, Alexandria, Bahrain, Khartoum, Casablanca, Doha, Cairo, Amman, Sharm El Sheikh, Kuwait, Beirut and Dubai.”
In addition to the following international destinations: Athens, Islamabad, Amsterdam, Paris, Peshawar, Tunis, Jakarta, Geneva, Hyderabad, Dhaka, Delhi, Guangzhou, Frankfurt, Calicut, Karachi, Kuala Lumpur, Cochin, Colombo, Lahore, Lucknow, London, Mali, Manila, Madrid, Multan, Milan, Munich, Nairobi, New York and Washington.
Abdullah Al-Shahrani, Director of Corporate Communications at Saudi Airlines, said, “The company took advantage of the long suspension period, especially on international destinations, to make improvements and developments on its aircraft.”
He added, “We implemented a set of maintenance plans that were supposed to be implemented in the future, as we finished them and were supposed to be carried out by the end of this year and early next year, in preparation for the increase in the operating frequency and flight hours after May 17th.”
Saudi Arabia had announced earlier that it would allow three categories of its citizens to travel outside the country, starting on May 17, after more than a year of placing travel restrictions due to the outbreak of the Corona pandemic.
