Korean Air resumes flights to Jeddah via Riyadh after 14 years

  • Korean Air returned to Saudi Arabia on 9 November, as the SkyTeam carrier relaunched its route from Seoul Incheon (ICN) to Jeddah (JED) via Riyadh (RUH) after 15 years. Flights on the 8,400-kilometre route will depart with thrice-weekly frequencies and be operated using A330-200s. Ha Man-kee, Korean Air’s Manager Saudi Arabia, said: “We resumed our flights to Saudi Arabia as demand from the construction, housing and power plant markets is growing. More and more Korean construction companies are winning contracts in the country; we therefore expect an increase in the number of passengers.”
