New Air Routes Between Saudi Arabia and China Announced

As part of a strategic effort to enhance air connectivity between Saudi Arabia and China, the Saudi Air Connectivity Program (ACP) has joined forces with China Eastern Airlines to introduce a new air route connecting Shanghai and Riyadh. This collaboration is geared towards addressing the growing demand for travel and trade between the two countries and strengthening bilateral relations through improved connectivity.

The new air route linking Saudi Arabia and China is scheduled to commence operations on April 8th and will offer three weekly flights between Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) and Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport (RUH). China Eastern Airlines will operate the route using an A330-200 aircraft, providing an annual capacity of 35,880 inbound seats.

“The introduction of this new route with one of the world’s largest airlines is another step towards enhancing connectivity between Saudi Arabia and China, a key priority market for us,” Majid Khan, ACP CEO, tells SceneTraveller. “We look forward to working with China Eastern Airlines to enable tourists and businesses to explore the attractions and opportunities both nations have to offer.”

This collaboration between ACP and China Eastern Airlines is aimed at meeting the increasing interest and demand for travel between the two nations and aligns with Saudi Arabia’s endeavors to establish a connection with China that fosters cultural understanding while opening up new growth opportunities.
