Airlines that fly from London to Jeddah

British Airways and Saudia both offer direct flights from London-Heathrow to Jeddah. There are currently no flights to Jeddah from London-City, London-Gatwick, London-Luton, London-Stansted or London-Southend.

Terminal Information – Departing

This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.

British Airways depart from terminal 5 while Saudia flights leave from terminal 4. Be careful when travelling to the airport: terminals 4 and 5 both have their own dedicated stops on the tube. The Heathrow Express doesn't stop at terminal 4: you'll need to disembark at terminal 1, 2 & 3 and take the tube an extra stop. Both terminals have a fantastic range of designer clothes shop: and as you're leaving the EU you can make the most of your duty free allowance. Note that bringing alcohol into Saudi Arabia is illegal, so you might want to avoid the wine and spirit section of the duty free shop.

Terminal Information – Arriving

Taxis from the airport charge anywhere from 60-130* riyal (about £11.20-£24.30) depending on your ability to haggle. Passengers are encouraged to enquire and agree on a price before setting off. Public buses are also available from the airport to Jeddah, Mecca and Medina. Car hire at Jeddah Airport is available from a range of international and local agencies. Note that it's illegal for women to drive in Saudi Arabia.  

Practical Information

You need a valid passport and a visa to visit Saudi Arabia. Your passport needs to be valid for six months after your date of entry. Muslim pilgrims need to apply for a special Hajj visa. Note that any Muslim flying into Jeddah without a Hajj visa will be denied entry: this rule doesn't apply to anyone else. If your passport has an Israeli stamp, or if you were born in Israel, you might be denied entry. Female visitors need to be met upon arrival by a male sponsor.

What to expect in Jeddah

Jeddah is three hours ahead of London. The currency is the Saudi riyal. Saudi Arabia is a strict Muslim country. It's important to respect the local culture. It's an offence to eat, drink or smoke in public during daylight during the month of Ramadan. It's also important to dress appropriately: women need to wear loose fitting conservative clothing, along with a cloak and a headscarf. Men should avoid wearing revealing clothes, too: no shorts or vest tops. There are lots of unique laws in Saudi Arabia: we fully recommend reading the British government's travel advice before booking your flights. Jeddah is much hotter than the UK, with an average temperature of 32°C in July and 23°C in January.
