Flights to Abha commenced on July 17, and flights to Hail on July 21.
Offering travellers a direct gateway to discover the hidden treasures of the Kingdom, the city of Abha is the culturally rich capital of the Aseer region in the southern end of the Red Sea coast and a great base for exploring this mountainous part of Arabia. The city of Hail on the other hand is nestled between Mount Shammer to the north and Mount Salma to the south and was once the capital of all the Arabian Desert where tourists today can enjoy a holiday through history and sand skiing.
Rohit Ramachandran, CEO, Jazeera Airways, said, “We are very excited to be expanding our footprint in Saudi to offer our customers more routes to the Kingdom, providing access to new tourism sites and commercial centers as we now offer over 80 flights a week into KSA.”
Abha has a wealth of delights to discover, from the mud-walled Shada Palace to Abha Dam Lake and the Abha Palace Theme Park. Its vibrant traditional markets offer enjoyable shopping experience while visitors can enjoy roaming the historic neighbourhoods like Al Nasb and Al Basta. Abha is the place to be immersed in the unique culture of the Aseer region, exploring the Jabal Thera (Green Mountain), one of Saudi’s more curious landmarks as well as Al Muftaha Village, Abha’s bohemian arts quarter built around a mosque covered in calligraphy.
