Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight Guide

Saudi Arabian Airlines

Saudi Arabian Airlines History

Saudi Arabian Airlines, which is branded simply as “Saudia”, began in 1945 when the then-US president Roosevelt gifted a plane to the king. Today, Saudi Arabian Airlines is the flag carrier of the country, with its main hub at the Jeddah-King Abdulaziz International Airport.
Saudia operates also out of a number of other hubs, including Dammam-King Fahd, Medina-Prince Mohammad and Riyadh-King Khalid International Airports. It is a very large airline with 149 planes operating to some 90 distinct destinations.

Why fly Saudi Arabian Airlines?

Saudia has many years of experience. It is the flag carrier of Saudi Arabia, one of the wealthiest oil nations in the world. As such, the airline’s service must reflect the economic rise of the country. Saudia changed its name from the former incarnation when it joined the SkyTeam alliance, a membership that affords its customers additional perks for flying with them.
Saudia’s frequent flyer program is called Al-Fursan. It functions based on the same principles as other airlines, allowing passengers to fly and gain miles in order to determine their membership level, and also to redeem for free or reduced-fare tickets, upgrades and hotel deals.

Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight Destinations

Saudia flies all over the world, serving some 80 distinct cities. They have many domestic flights in addition to international routes. They fly throughout the Middle East, and to most of the main Muslim countries in the world. They are one of the principle airlines that serve the pilgrims who arrive to Mecca, something it is said that every Muslim must do. They also serve destinations in Europe, including major cities in France, Greece, Germany, Belgium and the UK, among others. They provide long haul flights to the United States and to Canada. Their planes reach as far as China, Japan and South Korea, to Singapore, India, Hong Kong and Bangladesh. They also have routes in Africa.
The company is still working on its relationship to other SkyTeam members, but it had already had a number of stable deals in place. The airlines with codeshare agreements include Kenya Airways, SriLankan Airlines, Gulf Air, Air France, Alitalia, Middle East Airlines and Kuwait Airways.

On Board Saudi Arabian Airlines

For those who are used to pork and alcohol, one should know that these are not served aboard Saudia flights. The company follows the strict Sharia Laws of the country, and this includes its international flights. It is interesting to be aboard when fasting is taking place, because boxed food is served when the sun goes down. Saudi food offerings include dates and samosas.
The economy class is called “Guest Class” aboard Saudia planes, and offers in-flight entertainment systems on the seatback headrests. The system has between 20 and 40 channels of on-demand entertainment options depending on the aircraft. Seats are luxurious, since they come with extra room, pitch and automatic adjustments.

Business Class Flights

Business Class passengers receive welcome drinks. The seats are upgraded and greater recline capability. Passengers are treated to upgraded meal options, with a high-class section of wines as accompaniment. The video monitors that are installed for entertainment are larger than in guest class, but with the same offerings. Amenity kits are also provided.
There is also a First Class option on some aircraft with added space, added recline, executive meals and much more.
