Saudia Planning Flights to Toronto this Fall

Saudia, the national airline of Saudi Arabia, will be launching flights from Toronto connecting to Jidda and Riyadh.  This will be of great benefit to Canadians who want to travel to the kingdom for the hajj and umrah pilgrimages in the coming years.  Currently, those flying to Saudi Arabia do so by flying to the Gulf states via the U.S. or Europe.  The flights will begin on October 28 and will operate on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

This year, hajj will be over by the time the new service is launched, but it will be available to those who want to do the umrah pilgrimage.  A major tour operator says there will be no change in the number of Canadians partaking in the hajj next year due to the new service.  Alaa El-Kholy of Falcon Travel, says this is because the Saudis have cut the global hajj quota by 20% due to a huge expansion going on in the city of Mecca.
