Saudi airport offers maid transportation service

A Saudi Arabian airport has launched a new service that takes female domestic workers arriving from abroad straight to their employers’ houses – apparently to save them from having to go there themselves.

The Riyadh Airports Company, which represents Saudi Arabia’s King Khalid International Airport, posted an image on its official Twitter account of the inside of a plane opening straight into a family home.

It has been met with a mixed response among Saudi Twitter users. While some say the company saves them from having to search the busy airport for their new employee, others ask whether it objectifies domestic workers.
