This expansion coincides with the latest announcement of the availability of electronic visas for Turkish citizens. It also reflects the airline's commitment to supporting the goals of Saudi Vision 2030, particularly its role in carrying 30 million pilgrims.

The airline said the expansion comes at a time when operations are experiencing substantial growth, especially in light of the increasing number of guests arriving to perform Umrah. Saudia is fully dedicated to providing an elevated journey for these pilgrims, with a strong emphasis on offering superior and spiritually enriching services to ensure a seamless pilgrimage experience.

The operational expansion includes the addition of flights to both Ankara and Gaziantep, offering direct connections to Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah. Moreover, the airline plans to introduce an additional 100 flights during the peak Umrah season, effectively increasing the available seating capacity by 37,000. These flights will serve both King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah and Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah.
