Many thanks.
Yes, its paid in full. Not sure on exact amount for annual flight allowance but it more than covers it.

Thanks ZeroCool!
I saw a SAR 17,000 figure on another thread for a single-status. Just wondering if this is a flat figure for all or it varies with the home location!

That sounds about right yeah. It is based on average flight price during the year, and yes, obviously location dependent. They get the cost data from IATA, so not just a random figure plucked from the sky.

How does flight booking go? Do they only try to use Saudi Airline as much as possible? I heard that it was only through Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam to NEOM Bay.

I am coming from the USA, anyone has any experience with that?

Hello

Thanks for the great forum.
I have a couple questions about the flight from Neom Bay to London on Wednesday and Sunday.
1. How hard is it to get tickets for the flight? Especially for holidays and the end/start of the month.
2. What is the approximate cost of the tickets?
3. How long should one plan to get off the plane and get through the customs in London? I plan to use Heathrough airport for a connecting flight.

Your experience and feedback will be much appreciated. Thanx.

Hi Pac-
1) There usually aren't too many problems getting on that flight. Just book a week or two in advance and you're good. Book early around the holidays, though. People plan early to leave around Eid and school holidays.
2) Again, check saudia.com. These are normal flights. Prices vary like any other flight.
3) Last time I flew into LHR it took me about 45 minutes to clear customs.

FYI, there are regular flights now to DXB and DOH. Depending on where you are going, these may be viable alternatives for your final destination.
Cheers.

Apart from the 2 free internal flights per month to Jeddah/Riyadh/Damam - I believe discounted flights are also on offer for other internal destinations.

can anyone shed any light on this and the level of discount?

Not really. There was a Saudia code but not sure it works any more.

I tend to land at ungodly hours of the morning with a Riyadh or Jeddah Flight. I'm in the car about 20 minutes after landing. I don't have hold luggage..this can set you back 45 minutes to an hour. In my kitchen with champagne an hour later. god bless working from home in the UK..no traffic on the M25 or M3 on a friday. Mashallah!

3) I would only add that transferring through T4 is not great if the connection is close and needing to change terminals. It's slow to get to train/bus. Sometimes baggage is slow to come out (in my experience) and the transfer with train or bus is slow and was unpredictable with strikes. Passport control has always been quick for me.
