The Seoul/Incheon-Riyadh-Jeddah flights operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Chang Hoon Chi, the President and COO of Korean Air, said, “It is a great pleasure to announce that Korean Air has restarted its service to Saudi Arabia; In the 1970s and 1980s, the time known as the ‘Middle East Boom’ years many Korean companies enjoyed excellent commercial links with Saudi Arabia. I believe by restarting Korean Air’s service to Saudi Arabia we will contribute to a growing exchange between the two countries and the airline will play the role of ‘messenger’ - introducing Korean Culture to the Middle East.”

Saudi Arabia, one of the major Middle Eastern countries, possessing one-fourth of the world’s oil reserves, is Korea’s 4th largest trade partner after China, the United States of America and Japan.
