Saudi Arabian Airlines has added two new routes as will on 5 June fly from Riyadh to Athens and from 6 June connect Jeddah to Marrakesh.

The Jeddah-Marrakesh route will be operated with a widebody Boeing 787 Dreamliner and operate three-times-weekly. It adds to a Casablanca link it already runs.

The airline is returning to Greece’s capital after services discontinued in 2008, starting first with a Riyadh to Athens service, which later in the year will become a Jeddah-Athens service.

The Riyadh-Athens route will be operated four-weekly with an Airbus A320.

Last year the airline flew more than 34 million passengers, and it flies to 95 destinations worldwide, with a fleet of more than 160 narrow and widebody Airbus and Boeing aircraft.
