British Airways to resume direct flights between Jeddah and London

The airline will have four flights to and from the Kingdom on a year-round basis…

To our English expat chums in Jeddah, we’ve got wonderful news for you. British Airways, the UK’s national flag carrier, will be reinstating its Jeddah to London (and back again) service later this year.

The new flights will be operated by the Boeing 787 fleet, with a four-per-week service on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Recommencing from Monday November 4, it will depart Jeddah (King Abdul Aziz International – Terminal 1) at 7.55am and arrive in London (Heathrow – Terminal 5) at 11.45am, local time.

The return flight leaves London (Heathrow – Terminal 5) at 8.10pm and arrives in Jeddah (King Abdul Aziz International – Terminal 1) at 5.30am, the following day.

With BA already flying our neighbours in Riyadh to London on a daily service, flights out of and to Jeddah will boost connectivity between the city and a flying hub that is often ranked as the busiest on the planet.

What’s more, to celebrate the launch, British Airways is offering return fares from SAR1,905 in World Traveller (economy) and SAR16,079 SAR in Club World (business class), if you were to book before Wednesday June 5.

Colm Lacy, British Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, commented, “We have a long history of connecting families, friends and businesses in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with our home in London. There are significant opportunities for businesses in both countries, so we’re pleased we can re-build our connectivity and strengthen links between the two kingdoms.”

The flights from Jeddah to London are available to book from today on the British Airways website.
