According to Skycanner, March 18, 2023 (Saturday) is the most popular departure date, with 38% of travellers aiming to travel to Saudi Arabia. More than 92% travellers are planning to travel to the Kingdom during the week of March 20, making the start of Ramadan the most popular travel time.

Skyscanner’s report stated that travellers from across the GCC, the United Kingdom, Egypt and Germany are amongst the most popular making their way to Saudi Arabia during this time while Jeddah is the airport of choice accounting for 75% of the total bookings.

More than 70% of travellers are looking for trips between 1-2 weeks long, the report said.

“As restrictions ease and capacity increases, we are seeing travel demand return to pre-pandemic levels, if not higher,” said Ayoub El Mamoun, Skyscanner Travel Expert.

“Travel remains a key priority, with many travellers across the GCC, such as the UAE and Saudi, planning the same or more trips in 2023 than they did the year previously,” Mamoun added.
