1 weekly flight is nonstop RUH-HKG-RUH & the 2nd weekly flight is RUH-HKG-CMB-RUH.

I hope they start pax services to HKG! HKG only gets only two Middle Eastern carriers; EK & Gulf Air (Gulf actually suspended flights to HKG due to SARS but they are returning in July). The demand is certainly there for SV, especially to destinations such as Jeddah (business traffic).

Turkish Airlines are also middle eastern, and I think more airlines from the region will add HKG such as Yemenia who are planning to with their new A330.

Yes silly me I forgot Turkish. They too scrapped HKG due to SARS (god damn SARS) but I hear they are returning in July.

But my point was there is a lot of traffic to Jeddah from HKG (e.g. many many Indian businessmen in HKG travel to the Middle East for business & Jeddah is the favored destination). CX already flies to RUH but I don’t see why SV can’t operate services to HKG via another city, or maybe even direct (unlikely though).

They will eventually, probably via Bangkok or even a 744 nonstop.
