I hope someone will be able to help with my query. I am planning to do umrah in May along with my wife and have already bought Saudi Airline tickets online from London to Jeddah via Riyadh.
Now someone has told me that we’ll not be allowed to get on plan from Riyadh to Jeddah. The reason for this they say is that we have umrah visa and umrah flight should be direct to Jeddah from London. I do not understand the logic because our checked in luggage will go automatically to Jeddah and we’ll just change our plane at Riyadh airport, we’ll not be going out of airport. Connecting flights are common all over the world but I have never come across something like this before. It is so confusing and our tickets are not changeable or refundable.
I’ll really appreciate if someone can help me in this regard, we don’t want to be stuck at Riyadh airport.
