Dubai-based Emirates has relaunched services to Saudi Arabia.

Flights to and from the kingdom returned to the skies on Saturday after being grounded since the start of July. The move comes after Saudi last week removed the UAE from its red list of travel destinations.

The carrier will initially operate 24 weekly flights to Saudi Arabia, including daily flights to the capital Riyadh, daily A380 flights to Jeddah, daily flights to Dammam and three weekly flights to Medina. Flights to Riyadh will increase to double daily from September 16, and plans are underway to boost frequencies across the other gateways by the end of September.

Emirates will be restarting services to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 11 September and St Petersburg from 8 October. https://t.co/qsAqDNSiy5
