British Airways begins daily flights from Saudi Arabia in winter

Due to strong, ever-increasing demand, British Airways’ winter schedule has been further revised to include daily flights from Riyadh instead of the six it had earlier announced. And with its five services a week from Jeddah, British Airways will operate a total of 12 flights between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and London Heathrow by end October.

The Riyadh service will be served using a Boeing 777 offering a choice of four cabins that includes the award winning Club World (business class) and the airlines flagship cabin, First.

Paolo De Renzis, Regional Commercial Manager Middle East said: “We are absolutely delighted with the demand from the Saudi Arabian market h since we resumed flights two years ago. Our two Kingdom’s share a great affinity and passengers are travelling for a wide variety of reasons from tourism to business to education.

“In response to this continuously growing demand, we quickly realized that the additional one flight a week from Riyadh, announced just over a month ago, wasn’t going to be sufficient. So, instead of adding one flight, we’ve decided to increase it to two, resulting in a daily service throughout the week from Riyadh beginning in end-October this year.

“Thins move  is re-affirmation of our long-term commitment of serving our loyal customers in the Kingdom and reinforcing the brand as the preferred carrier of choice for travel into the UK or for transiting to other destinations in the extensive British Airways network.”
