UAE will restart flights to Saudi Arabia from Saturday, September 11.

Emirates Airlines, in a statement, confirmed that daily flights will restart to the capital city of Riyadh from the 11th of September.

The announcement comes after the Kingdom lifted travel restrictions from the UAE yesterday, meaning, vaccinated travellers to and from the UAE can visit without quarantine.

Flights to Riyadh will increase to double daily from 16 September, and plans are underway to boost frequencies across the other gateways by the end of September.

Etihad Airways also announced a resumption of flights from the 11th of September to Riyadh, with other cities to follow in succession.
