The airline called on all passengers to follow travel instructions and requirements caused by the coronavirus pandemic, indicating that flights are available for booking consistent with availability.
Saudia resumed international flights on Sept. 15 following the choice of the Saudi authorities to exempt certain categories of Saudis and expatriates from the temporary travel ban imposed since March as a part of precautionary measures to stem the spread of coronavirus.
Accordingly, all the international airports in the Kingdom are geared up to work flights during this phase in coordination with the Ministry of Health and other government agencies, the General Authority of Civil Aviation had said in a statement earlier.
