Saudia (SV) will start operating non-stop flights between the Kingdom and Madrid on October 29 while continuing its service between capitals of the two countries, said Mr. Abdulrazaq Al-Bahar, SV Manager, France, Spain and Portugal.

“The JED-MAD operation will be three days a week on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays,” using A-320 aircraft with a capacity of 20 Business Class seats and 96 Guest Class seats for the service.

At present Saudia operates four flights from Madrid to Saudi Arabia via Milan; two to Jeddah (on Tuesdays and Fridays) and two to Riyadh (on Wednesdays and Saturdays). “But this will change from 29th October 2013 to three frequencies but direct operation with no stopover in the Italian city of Milan,” the manager said.

Saudia flights to Spain after October 29 will be on the route Riyadh-Jeddah Madrid with return flights following the route Madrid-Jeddah-Riyadh, the manager said.

Saudia transported 5,070 passengers from Madrid to Saudi Arabia in 2012 while total passengers carried until June 25, 2013 reached 4,349, Mr. Al-Bahar said.

Saudia started operations to Spain in 1981 with two daily flights between Madrid and Jeddah. In March 2007, it launched a new route, Riyadh-Jeddah-Milan-Madrid, and it continues this service until today.
