Red Sea Global Celebrates Inaugural Flight to Red Sea International Airport
Red Sea Global (RSG) marked a historic moment with the arrival of the first flight at Red Sea International Airport (RSI). The SAUDIA flight from King Khalid International Airport (RUH) in Riyadh, which takes less than two hours, inaugurated a new twice-weekly service connecting the two cities.
John Pagano, Group CEO of Red Sea Global, expressed his excitement, saying, “We promised to make The Red Sea a place where people from all around the world would come to experience the best of Saudi culture, hospitality, and nature. Now, with the first flight touching down at Red Sea International Airport and our first resorts receiving bookings, Saudi Arabia’s position on the global tourism map is all but secured.”
Flights from Riyadh to RSI depart each Thursday at 10:50 AM and return the same day. Additionally, a second service operates every Saturday at 12:50 PM, with a return flight to Riyadh at 3:35 PM.
Red Sea International Airport, positioned within an eight-hour flight from 85% of the world’s population, will further expand to accommodate international flights as additional phase-one resorts open.
