Saudia announces triumphant return to Johannesburg

On December 1, Saudia wrote a new chapter in its aviation history by carrying out its very first flight to OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg from King Fahd Abdelaziz Airport in Jeddah. This inaugural flight marks the end of a notable 45-month absence, a break which was imposed by the exceptional circumstances linked to the global spread of COVID-19.

The intercontinental route between Jeddah and Johannesburg is now reinstated with a frequency of four flights per week, providing travelers with a more regular and convenient option for traveling between Saudi Arabia and South Africa.

Flight times are as follows:

Outbound flight JED —> JNB:

  • Saturdays and Mondays at 1:45 p.m.
  • Wednesdays and Fridays at 1:15 a.m

Return Flight JNB —> JED:

  • Saturdays and Mondays at 9:40 p.m.
  • Wednesdays and Fridays at 8:50 a.m.

These times have been carefully planned to provide maximum flexibility for travelers.

To ensure the comfort and safety of passengers, Saudia has chosen a cutting-edge aircraft model: the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with 298 seats including 274 business class seats.
