Use our guide to discover when you might find cheap flights to Saudi Arabia and when advanced booking is essential…

Occupying most of the Arabian Peninsula, Saudi Arabia is rich in both oil and history.

Most flights to Saudi Arabia arrive at these major airports: King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED), which serves Jeddah; King Fahd International Airport (DMM), near Dammam; King Khalid International Airport (RUH), near Riyadh; and Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport (MED), in Medina.

Two of Islam’s holiest mosques are located in Saudi Arabia and all fit and able Muslims are required to make a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once – this traditional pilgrimage is known as Hajj. Cheap flights to Saudi Arabia from UK airports, indeed from any airport in the world, will be hard to come by during Dhu al-Hijjah. This is the final month of the Islamic calendar and it is when Hajj takes place. Flights and hotels will be booked up months in advance, so book Saudi Arabia flights as early as you can if you are making the pilgrimage. As the Islamic calendar is lunar, the exact timing of Dhu al-Hijjah changes year on year so it pays to do some research before you book.

The cheapest flights to Saudi Arabia are to be found outside of this holy time. The winter months of November to February are popular times to visit Saudi Arabia, as daytime temperatures are lower and more comfortable than the 40C+ days you can expect in summer.
