ATM 2016: Saudi Arabian Airlines to boost Los Angeles flights

Saudi Arabian Airlines will increase its flights between Saudi Arabia and Los Angeles from three departures a week to five from June 1st. 

This is in anticipation of increased demand during the peak season and in keeping with its continued expansion in its services in North America and elsewhere.

The national carrier of Saudi Arabia operates new B777-300ERs to its North American gateways that include New York, Washington DC, Toronto and Los Angeles.

The Saudia flights to Los Angeles International Airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal (LAX/TBIT) has a three-class configuration for a total of 305 seats – 24 in First Class, 36 in Business Class and 245 in Guest Class.

Saudia first flew to Los Angeles on March 31st, 2014, becoming the first and so far only non-stop carrier between Saudi Arabia and the US West Coast.


With the flight frequency increase, Saudia will, from June 1st, fly nonstop not only to Jeddah but also nonstop to the capital city of Riyadh.

Flight days are on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, taking off at 15:00.

Saudia started back in 1945 with one DC-3 Dakota aircraft, the gift of US President Franklin Roosevelt to King Abdul Aziz, the founding King of Saudi Arabia.

Today, Saudia flies to more than 80 destinations and carries more than 27 million passengers annually.
