Airlines and Routes from the old Dhahran Airport

Hey guys!

Anyone here know what routes were flown and what airlines used to serve DHA in Saudi Arabia, particularly in the 70s, 80s, and 90s?

Admins, please delete if there already is a topic on this.

Thanks.

Re: London Heathrow (LHR) 2019 New Routes

[twoid][/twoid] My tweet has the timings but is around 40 minutes Bahrain to Damamm and 50 minutes back.

Re: Houston Aviation Thread - 2019

There is another thread on here started this week about the CEO of TAP stating he wants to start service to IAH ( among others) in 2020. I think this would be good for IAH and good for Houston area travelers to have easier access to the Iberian peninsula and North Africa. Obviously TAP being in Sta...

That's definitely a long shot, given how IAH is only about 160 miles from AUS
