Emirates has been facilitating tourism and trade in KSA since 1989 when it launched Jeddah, its first destination in the Kingdom. Since then, the airline has been developing its operations to Riyadh, Jeddah, Medina, Dammam and today serves the four gateways with 67 weekly flights, including A380 services to Riyadh and Jeddah. The airline has also carried more than 25 million passengers to and from the Kingdom since the start of its services. 

Recently, Emirates signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Tourism Authority (STA) to boost inbound tourism into Saudi Arabia and attract new segments of travellers across the airline’s extensive global network. The new agreement aims to raise awareness and amplify the Saudi Arabian experience across the Emirates’ network and encourage leisure travellers to come and visit the Kingdom’s unique attractions.  
Emirates was also the first airline to touchdown with its A380 at Terminal 1 in Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA), making it the first airline to operate the double-decker aircraft to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s latest aviation landmark.
