Saudia has unveiled plans to launch nonstop thrice weekly direct flights to the Greek island of Mykonos, starting 1 July 2022.
Departing on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the SV193 / SV194 route will have a total flight time of 4 hours and 5 minutes outbound from Riyadh’s King Khaled International Airport (RUH) to Mykonos International Airport (JMK) and 4 hours 10 minutes on the inbound from Mykonos to Riyadh.
Saudia will operate the flights with Airbus A320 aircraft in a two-class configuration, with 20 seats in Business Class and 90 seats in Guest Class.
The Business Class cabin features fully flat lie-bed seats and dine-on-demand cuisine.

The airline recently announced the addition of 10 new international routes: Bangkok, Thailand; Barcelona and Malaga, Spain; Marrakech, Morocco; Moscow, Russia; Beijing, China; Seoul, South Korea; Entebbe, Uganda; Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and Chicago, Illinois in the United States.
