Hi, does anybody know how I can book a flight (here in the UK) on the internet, to take us from Jeddah to Medinah and back?
Well, you could book a flight online. There are 2 carriers in Saudi that i am aware of:
1.Saudi Airlines (which provides better service in my opion which is totally a subjective opinion)
you could go to online booking page here in this link:
2.NAS airlines..onlineBooking link:
Safe trip :)
Agree with above. The other low cost airline in KSA is SAMA but Saudiar is the most reliable within Kingdom.
Saudi Airline (SA) is good and many frequencies. But, if you are going with Umrah visa, the price you see is the price you will NOT get.
Last year I did the same way as you did and the price is SR 140 each way and which is around US$37.00.
This year in June, I try to purchase the same way and SA online booking took all the way with same price SR 140 and last moment for payment with credit card,you have to call SA agent. SA Agent said Umra persons fare is US$ 97.00. I asked why not honor your online published fare and last moment price hike. His answer was the NEW rule from Saudi airline official ..(NUTS ??). Local pay Saudi Riyal(SA)140 and foreigner pays higher fare.
Check with SA office in UK before you book the ticket. Good luck and happy Ramadan.
i've booked online with saudia airlines twice (2 yrs ago and again last month) had no problems. very reasonable price. just make sure you book and purchase the tickets before you get to jeddah. almost impossible to purchase same day tickets at jeddah airport.
I fly Saudia all the time and they are fine and efficient
