About Saudi Arabian Airlines

Like most Middle Eastern Airlines, Saudi Arabian airlines excels at service — one of many reasons it ranks so well on AirlineRatings.com. It’s Saudi Arabia’s signature airline, having been the fourth in the region to acquire jet aircraft. Soon after its launch, it began building an aggressive list of fleet additions to enhance its brand and coverage. It later introduced a budget-friendly subsidiary called Flyadeal. This secondary airline will play a key role in the expansion of domestic and regional routes. Saudi Arabian Airlines flights are part of the only cargo alliance in the world, serving a large chunk of 730 million annual passengers. Saudi Arabian Airlines is a member of the Skyteam Alliance in tandem with Vietnam Airlines and China Eastern Airlines. It also has a number of private aircraft for business travellers, with a maximum of 400 seats per flight. Charter trips are usually operated during Ramadan and Hajj. The private fleet focuses on speed, allowing travellers to reach their destination quickly and safely. It offers four classes on most trips and prides itself on its service on the ground. Boarding, check-in, and luggage handling are all achieved efficiently. Today, the airline has been rebranded as Saudia, an update that will ultimately include a broader transformation strategy to improve its destinations list.

How do I check in online with Saudi Arabian Airlines?

The Saudi Arabian Airlines check-in process can be completed online on all domestic flights and a limited number of global ones. You can check in between one and 48 hours before your domestic flight is set to take off. A valid ID document, passport, and visa will be required after logging into your booking page with your reference, e-ticket number, or frequent flyer number. To keep passengers safe, the payment credit card will be needed, too. Gates are closed within 20 minutes of departure. Those who need additional seats or have special medical needs are advised to use counter check-ins instead. Unaccompanied children or those travelling with pets will need to make arrangements that the online check-in process can’t meet adequately.

What is my checked baggage allowance on Saudi Arabian Airlines?

The Saudi Arabian Airlines baggage allowance is a standard 23 kg for economy and flex travellers. Business class passengers are allowed two items of luggage at 32 kg each. Infants are allowed 23 kg, at dimensions of between 158 cm and 205 cm. Gold and Elite Plus members may travel with an extra 23 kg. If you’re travelling with medication, a medical report and hospital stamp will be required with a signature of a doctor. Liquid medications must be sealed to avoid leakage. If you need to carry more than your limits, you can pre-pay on credit card, an option that comes with a 40% discount. Dangerous materials and items are banned, including cigarette lighters and knives. Compressed gasses, weapons, and toxic substances are prohibited, and liquid restrictions apply to gels and spray bottles. Lithium batteries, electronics, and money aren’t allowed on checked in baggage. Flammable products are barred in both hold and carry-on luggage. Self-propelled mobility devices are no longer allowed in the hold. Sports equipment must be wrapped and meet size allowances.

What hand luggage can I take on Saudi Arabian Airlines?

Saudi Arabian Airlines hand luggage size for cabin items is 7 kg and 65 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm, with one extra purse or laptop bag. Business class passengers have a weight limit of 9 kg. All passengers are allowed to carry an overcoat, umbrella, camera, and infant basket into the cabin. Wheelchairs must be collapsible so that they can be stored in the overhead area. Mobiles, notebooks, and power packs are allowed in carry-on luggage, but flammable fluids and detonators are prohibited. Canes, cradles, and books aren’t charged for as long as they comply with weight restrictions. You can also take food and medications on board and, if you’re travelling with an infant, it’s advisable to carry any consumables your child might need. Seal all fluids in plastic bags to accommodate leaks.

Where does Saudi Arabian Airlines fly from?

Saudi Arabian Airlines destinations include countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America, all of which are launched from its primary hubs, Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Medina, and Abha. Its alliance with Air Europa and Delta Airlines allows it to cover more European territories. The fleet’s Airbus A320 handles all European destinations. In total, Saudia flies to 85 cities across the world, but its flights to Iran and Egypt have been terminated recently. In addition, its cargo fleet travels to Zaragoza, Spain. This is one of the reasons it’s become the third highest airline earner in the Middle East, surpassing the revenues of Emirates and Qatar Airlines.

From London the flight was fine. But the rest of three flight were were not good. Even though at the check in Di requested to have the seat with ladies. But on flights there were men sitting next to me and as the seat are very small. It was very uncomfortable when person to me were sleeping and taking over some part of my seat. I complained but nothing was done. I don't think I will choose this airline in future unless I don't have any other better choice. I think airline should listen to passengers requests
