Saudi carrier begins offering flights to Turkey’s Izmir


Saudi Airlines, the oil-rich kingdom’s national carrier, launched a new flight route to the Turkish city of Izmir on Wednesday.

Flights to Izmir, located on Turkey’s Aegean coast, will depart from Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport.

In a statement issued late Tuesday, the airliner said that four Jeddah-Izmir flights would begin operating on a weekly basis.

Saudi Airlines intends to eventually offer flights to Izmir every day of the week — starting June 10 — with the addition of three more flights out of Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport.

Izmir is the airliner’s third destination in Turkey after Istanbul and capital Anakra.
