Due to noticeable demand, Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) re-introduced flights to Calicut yesterday (December 5, 2018).
The Saudi-based carrier is re-launching these flights following a period of three and a half years. The airline stopped services in May 2015 because of runway restrictions of wide body aircraft due to runway re-carpeting.
SAUDIA now offers nonstop services to Calicut from both Jeddah and Riyadh on a split schedule – four-times-weekly and three-times-weekly, respectively. The routes are operated by a widebody Airbus A330-300 in a two-class configuration, with 36 seats in business class and 262 seats in economy class.
As well as Calicut, SAUDIA offers flights to eight other cities in India, including Bangalore, Chennai, Cochin, Mumbai, Trivandrum, Delhi, Hyderabad and Lucknow.
