First I’ll talk in general about Saudi airlines. Almost all flights from Dammam has to stop in Jeddah or Riyadh like Dammam is not a major city while Dammam is a major city and we should have direct flights to most of distinctions without stopping in Jeddah or Riyadh. The second issue is the rate of the tickets For example...

One of the best International Airlines of the world operating in the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru, India. I have frequently travelled by many airlines but I feel that no Airline is as good as Saudia.

Saudia was the very first airline which I flew in when I was 11 yrs old back in 1988 and exactly 30 years after (2018), I flew via Saudia once more. Still one of the best airlines on earth! Very comfy seats even in economy class. Service is still as I remembered - refreshing wipes, drinks, meals, pillows and blankets,...

I made sure that tickets can be partially refunded (original amount - $60 cancellation fees ), which is mentioned in my original booking. After few days, the Saudi government had disagreement with Canada, and decided to cancel their flights to Canada. The Saudia office rescheduled my trip through...
