Posted 6 December 2018 · Add Comment

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia), will add its ninth destination to the Republic of India, starting from December 5 this year.

 

The carrier is re-launching services to Calicut after a period of three and a half years, when the airline stopped services in May 2015 because of runway restrictions of wide body aircraft due to runway re-carpeting.

The airline will operate nonstop services from both Jeddah and Riyadh to Calicut on a split schedule – four-times-weekly and three-times-weekly, respectively.

A widebody Airbus A330-300 in a two-class configuration economy and business will be operated on the route, availing 36 seats in  Business Class and 262 seats in Economy Class.

The total journey time is approximately five hours and thirty minutes.

With the resumption of the Calicut route, Saudia flies to a total of nine points in India: Bangalore, Calicut, Chennai, Cochin, Mumbai, Trivandrum , Delhi, Hyderabad, and Lucknow.
