BA to restart flights to Saudi Arabia28 November 2008
British Airways is to resume flights to Riyadh and Jeddah, in Saudi Arabia, in March, after a four year gap in services.
The growing importance of Middle-Eastern investors to Western economies means the routes which British Airways abandoned in 2005, as oil prices started to climb, are now commercially viable.
Previously the routes had been dogged by security problems, with the airline having to suspend services at certain times in the years immediately after 9/11.
