Saudia reinstates direct route from Manchester to Jeddah

The service will initially operate three times weekly between December 15, 2021 and January 9, 2022.

Marking the UK's only airport outside of London to offer a direct route to Saudi Arabia, Manchester Airport will welcome the return of the Manchester to Jeddah service in December for the first time in 21 months.

The first flight will depart on December 15, 2021 at the newly refurbished Terminal Two, and will thereafter depart three times weekly. 

Manchester Airport's managing director, Karen Smart, said: “The return of Saudi to Manchester Airport is wonderful news and demonstrates the renewed confidence amongst passengers and airlines as we begin to emerge from the pandemic.

“This is a route that is hugely important to communities across the North, given it is the only direct service to Saudi Arabia outside London. We are thrilled to welcome Saudi back to Manchester and hope to see this service becoming a permanent fixture in 2022.”
