After a long absence, Saudia announces its return to Canada

Saudia recently unveiled plans to restore air links between Jeddah- King Abdulaziz and Toronto Pearson International Airport. The initiative is of critical importance to both travelers and the airline industry as it signals the revival of a crucial route that was suspended five years ago due to human rights concerns.

The reinstatement of flights between Jeddah and Toronto, which will officially take place on December 2, 2023, highlights the growing importance of relations between the Middle Eastern and North American countries. With substantial ties in the areas of trade, diplomacy and cultural exchanges, this resumption of the link will strengthen connectivity and encourage closer collaboration between the two nations.

The decision to suspend flights in 2018 had primarily stemmed from human rights concerns. Nevertheless, in the years since, Saudi Arabia and Canada have worked to consolidate their bilateral relations and ease the differences that led to the suspension. The resumption of flights demonstrates the common desire of both parties to progress and restore mutual trust.

Travelers can expect a seamless travel experience with Saudia. Renowned for its quality services and state-of-the-art fleet, the airline offers passengers a comfortable and pleasant journey. With a frequency of three flights per week, passengers will enjoy greater flexibility in planning their trips, as well as the convenience of direct flights connecting Jeddah to Toronto.
