British expatriates who prefer to travel with British Airways (BA) will be pleased to hear the airline has started flying into Saudi Arabia again.
For the last four years BA has not offered flights into the country, but has now announced it will operate five flights per week to Riyadh and Jeddah.
"British Airways has never taken its eyes off Saudi Arabia and after years of review and months of careful planning, we’re back where we belong – operating direct services to Saudi’s two principal aviation hubs," said BA’s area commercial manager for the Middle East, Paolo De Renzis.
London departures will leave from Heathrow airport’s newly-built Terminal Five and passengers will travel on the airline’s Boeing 767s and 777s.
The expat resource expat-blog.com recommends taking professional advice before investing in international health insurance, regardless of which country you may be flying to.
