From May 30, the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia will commence flights to Marrakech from Jeddah, while new direct routes to Málaga and Barcelona in Spain are scheduled to start on June 30 from Riyadh and Jeddah airports.

The latest direct flights to be added three days per week from Riyadh will be servicing the Greek island of Mykonos, known for its summer party atmosphere and reachable in about four hours.


Another noteworthy new international flight is the direct haul to the city of Los Angeles. Starting from April 25, Saudia will offer three direct flights per week from Jeddah, which means travellers can easily explore the iconic city and its picturesque beaches.
