Air France to suspend flights to Riyadh due to route’s poor ‘economic performance’

Air France has announced that it will suspend flights to Saudi capital Riyadh from February 1 due to the route’s poor “economic performance”.

However, Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia), which has a cooperation agreement with the French airline, will continue operating direct flights between Paris and Riyadh and honour Air France tickets booked before the announcement, a statement said.

“Due to the economic performance and in view of the cooperation with Saudi Arabian Airlines on this route, the Air France-operated flights will be suspended,” the airline said.

The last flight will take off from Paris Charles de Gaulle on January 31, 2019 and will return from Riyadh King Khalid International Airport on February 1, 2019.

“Passengers with a ticket for a flight from Paris to Riyadh or vice-versa after February 1, 2019 will be rebooked on flights of Saudi Arabian Airlines or financially compensated,” the statement added.
