Saudi: Jeddah Public Bus Service Extends to Airport North Terminal

Jeddah Transport Company announced on Tuesday an increase in the route of the express bus transport service connecting King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) and the Balad city centre of Jeddah. This will be through linking airport terminal 1 with terminal 2 (north terminal).

The Jeddah Transport Company started implementing the express transport bus service in April 2022 and that is in cooperation with Jeddah Airports Company and the Saudi Public Transport Company (SAPTCO).

With an increase in the route, the total length of the round trip from the Corniche station in the Balad city centre to the northern terminal will be 104 km, and the circular trip would take 210 minutes.

In addition to the airport and SAPTCO stations in Al-Balad, the route includes 3 stops — the first near Flamingo Mall on Prince Majed Street, the second near Al-Andalus Mall, and the third Baghdadiya 7 district on Madinah Road.

The express bus service at KAIA will operate around the clock during the week and will be connected with Jeddah’s centre, which comes within the joint cooperation to develop bus transport services to and from airport terminal 1 and terminal 2.

Jeddah Airports Company will allocate special bus parking in the departure and arrival areas of the airport terminals. The company will also establish a waiting station in front of the bus stops in the arrivals area.
