UMRAH PILGRIMS TRANSFERS

Pilgrims generally travel to Hajj and Umrah in groups. During the early 19th century, numbers undertaking the traditional overland pilgrimage within caravans began to diminish as many pilgrims began arriving in Makkah by steamship. This continued for some time, until air travel came to predominate; Egypt introduced the first airline service for Hajj pilgrims in 1937. Today, many airlines are operating from worldwide to Jeddah and Madinah airports. King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah and Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Airport in Madinah have dedicated pilgrim terminals to assist the arrival of pilgrims.

Arriving At Jeddah

The King Abdul Aziz International airport at Jeddah has three terminals; one for foreign airlines, one for Saudi Airlines and one is Madina-tul-hujjaj also known as Hajj terminal, and is in operation during Hajj season.

During Umrah if you fly into Jeddah by any airline other than Saudi Airlines you will disembark at the Hajj terminal. If you are intending to fly to Madinah then you will have to change the terminal and go to Saudi Airline terminal, because all domestic flights depart from the Saudi Airlines terminal only.

You will not have to change terminals if you are going straight to Makkah or Madinah by road you will take one of our private transportation to Makkah or Madinah. Below is list of our transportation that provided to pilgrims.
