Earlier this month, Saudia officially reintroduced its flights between Jeddah and Johannesburg. This long-haul flight returns after an extended three-year hiatus, the last connection dating from March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced many airlines including Saudia to suspend their operations.
From now on, travelers will have the opportunity to benefit from this strategic connection between the Saudi kingdom and the South African metropolis.
Flight frequency has been set at four times per week, providing passengers with increased flexibility in choosing their travel days. Schedule details are as follows:
Outbound flight (Jeddah – King Fahd Abdelaziz to Johannesburg – OR Tambo):
– Every Saturday and Monday at 1:45 p.m.
– Every Wednesday and Friday at 1:15 a.m.
Return Flight (JNB to JED):
– The same days at 9:40 p.m. and 8:50 a.m.
This intercontinental flight will be operated by a two-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, offering a total of 298 seats, including 274 in economy class and 24 in business class.
