Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz International Airport has launched a free shuttle service to make it simpler for visitors to enter the country.
The new service would take travellers from Jeddah’s Terminal 1 airport to Makkah’s Grand Mosque.
According to the airport’s Twitter feed, beneficiaries “must wear the Ihram and produce the national ID for Saudis or the passport for foreigners.”
Hajj Pilgrims will be able to leave the Grand Mosque every two hours from midday to midnight, while the airport will enable them to depart every two hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Saudi Arabia, which is home to two of Islam’s holiest shrines, welcomes Muslims from all over the world.
Saudi Arabia has said that age restrictions would be lifted and pilgrim capacity will be restored to pre-pandemic levels.
