  • King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh is one of the largest airports in the world in terms of total area. The airport spans a vast expanse of land, covering more than 315 square kilometers. This breadth not only reflects its physical size but also allows it to host a large number of facilities, services, and runways to handle a significant volume of air traffic. In addition to being a major gateway to Saudi Arabia, King Khalid International Airport is also notable for its modern architecture and amenities for travelers.

  • An intriguing fact about King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh is its innovative use of solar energy. The airport features a large solar power plant ☀️ that harnesses the abundant sunlight in the region to generate a significant portion of the airport’s electricity. This sustainable initiative not only reduces the environmental impact of the airport but also showcases a commitment to eco-friendly practices. The integration of renewable energy sources aligns with Riyadh’s broader efforts to promote environmental sustainability and reduce carbon footprints. 🌍

Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, is the world’s largest inland city, despite not being located near any coastline, even though it is the capital and the most populous city in the country. Despite its central location, Riyadh has undergone rapid growth and development in recent decades, emerging as a significant economic, political, and cultural center in the region.

Evolution of Riyadh

Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, transitioned from being a small walled city to a modern metropolis. In 1902, Ibn Saud recaptured Riyadh, marking the beginning of the Emirate of Riyadh. Over the decades, he continued to expand territories, unifying the country in 1932 under the name Saudi Arabia, with Riyadh as the capital. This transformation reflects the dynamic history of the country, blending tradition and modernity. 🌆✨

Saudia, the national airline of Saudi Arabia, was founded in 1945 as Saudia Airlines and has experienced significant growth since then. The airline is known for providing services to numerous domestic and international destinations, playing a crucial role in connecting Saudi Arabia with the rest of the world. Additionally, Saudia has been recognized for its commitment to service quality and the modernization of its fleet to provide a more comfortable and efficient travel experience.

Hello! We appreciate your participation and interest in the Saudia Virtual event. For a 9-hour duration, we would recommend these routes:

  • SV862 RPLL (Manila) — OERK (Riyadh): 9h00m (Saudia Boeing 777-300ER)
  • SV896 RKSI (Seoul) — OERK (Riyadh): 9h00m (Saudia Boeing 787-9)
  • SV888 ZBAD (Beijing Daxing) — OERK (Riyadh): 8h40m (Saudia Boeing 787-9)
  • SV994 ZSPD (Shanghai) — OERK (Riyadh): 8h30-40m approx (Saudia Boeing 777-F)

These are just a few routes that I recommend with approximately or close to that duration. However, keep in mind that the actual duration may depend on various factors such as wind conditions. Safe Flight!
