Saudia Flies Davao Next Year

15 September 2016

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has announced that it will start operating chartered flights from Davao City to Saudi Arabia starting next year with the use of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. 

It will be the first long haul destination from Davao and the first long haul airline to serve Mindanao. 

The Saudia flight scheduled in the last week of August and first week of September are intended for Hajj delegates to the Muslims’ annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

The airline is expected to mount four flights from Davao to Medina and Jeddah, respectively.

There are about 12,000 Hajj delegates out of the 20,000 government allocations from around the Philippines, majority of whom are coming from Mindanao.

Saudia operates daily flights from Manila to Riyadh, Dammam, and Jeddah, respectively using B777-300ER planes.
