It's time to press that play button again as Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) is here with the official launch of its first direct flight from Seoul to Riyadh — bringing these two important countries here in Asia closer than ever before. With an aim to support tourism and business travel needs as well as establish an everlasting relationship between the two countries, the launch of direct flights between Seoul and Saudi Arabia also aims to help connecting passengers to other destinations including Europe and the United States of America. For us, this means heightened connectedness within Asia for business and leisure travel purposes.
