In a recent announcement, Saudia Airlines, the national carrier of Saudi Arabia, has revealed that it will be launching its first direct flight service to Toronto, Canada. The inaugural flight is scheduled to take off on 2 December 2023, as reported by Wego.

Currently, passengers traveling from Jeddah to Toronto have to endure lengthy flights with two stops that could last about 27 hours. However, with the introduction of this direct flight service, passengers can look forward to a significantly reduced travel time of approximately 14 hours. This new service is a result of a collaboration with the Air Connectivity Program and is aimed at providing passengers with a more streamlined and efficient travel experience.


This initiative by Saudia Airlines is expected to bolster ties between Saudi Arabia and Canada, fostering tourism and business opportunities between the two nations. It also underscores Saudia Airlines’ commitment to expanding its international network and providing its passengers with a wider range of travel options.
