Saudia to commence direct flights to Vienna

RIYADH, May 17, 2018

Flag carrier Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has announced plans to restart flights to the Austrian capital city, Vienna, this June.

adding a new route for the summer with direct flights to be launched from Jeddah and Riyadh to the Austrian capital city, Vienna.

Starting June 16, the new route will operate four-times-weekly from Jeddah and Riyadh.

The total journey time between Saudi Arabia and Vienna will be under five hours and 30 minutes nonstop from Riyadh.

Eng. Abdulrahman Altayeb, vice president corporate communications for Saudia, said: “Saudia is pleased to be re-introducing Vienna to the airline’s global destination route map after a stop in services in 2010. Vienna joins a range of other new routes to launch this summer season, and is a city that is popular with travellers both for leisure and business.”

“The route expansion reinforces the transformative changes taking shape at the airline, where both the fleet and network are growing in frequency, capacity and variety,"  Altayeb added.

Guests flying to Vienna can access entertainment options right from their own devices, with onboard streaming from the Saudia mobile app, and USB sockets at every seat, as well as wi-fi connectivity onboard.

The flag carrier will also commence new services to Moscow, Russia and Málaga, Spain, next month.

Saudia’s growing route network and double-digit passenger growth have seen the airline carry more than 32 million guests last year, with further growth projected with the start of operations at Jeddah’s new King Abdulaziz International Airport, later this month.

Currently, Saudia flies to 90 destinations across four continents with a fleet of 147 aircraft. - TradeArabia News Service
