Saudia to resume seasonal direct flights between Paris and AlUla

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia), the kingdom’s national carrier, will resume a weekly direct flight between Paris Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) and AlUla international airport.

The flights will be operated from December 4, 2022 until March 12, 2023.

The new route, which will allow French travellers to reach AlUla in five hours, was announced as part of AlUla’s participation in the World Travel Market, London this week. The launch also coincides with AlUla Moments, the calendar of events taking place at the site, featuring series of festivals and events.

“This flight adds to the increasing accessibility of AlUla to international visitors with easier and faster connections for travellers coming from France and from the neighbouring European countries,” said Philip Jones, chief destination management and marketing officer at Royal Commission for AlUla.

Saudia operates 32 weekly roundtrip flights from AlUla to Riyadh, Jeddah, and Damman, with a seat capacity of more than 4,400.

“We are delighted to resume regular direct flights between Paris and AlUla, a move that will further enhance connections for visitors from France who are eager to experience everything this remarkable destination has to offer,” added Arved Von Zur Muhlen, chief commercial officer at Saudia.

“The relaunch of the route comes as part of our continuing partnership with the Royal Commission of AlUla, and builds on the strong ties between our nations to create exciting opportunities for cultural exchange.”

Last month, the national carrier announced that it would purchase 100 all-electric Lilium jets alongside yearly support services.
