Not so bad!

(Guest Review) Having read many reviews about the South Terminal at Jeddah it was with some trepidation that we booked with Saudia - Manchester to Johannesburg with our 5 children aged 7 - 12. However our experience was really not that bad. We arrived late at night and had 5 hours until the early hours. The initial transit experience isn't terribly pleasant as your are segregated into Male and Female queues to pass through security into the terminal. However we were patient and smiled and passed through with no problems. The terminal is basic and busy but if you take time to find a seat you can then set up base and enjoy people watching. We also took plenty of snacks and games and proceeded to inadvertently entertain other passengers with our large family antics! The toilets weren't pleasant but we were sensible and didn't roll around on the floor and took hand wipes and sanitiser. My top tips are: take plenty of snacks and games, smile at the staff (they are human), don't have great expectations of a sparkling terminal, take US or local currency for the cafes, take time to find decent seats, and tell yourself it's a decent trade off for the very competitively priced Saudia airlines and their excellent planes. Oh - we have now booked the same flights for next year with 5 hr and 8 hr layovers respectively!!

Poor human service

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Mohamed) This is on of the poorest airports on the level of human service (by humans & to human). No place to sit but metal benches. No person to answer your question and if answered they are usually see the display screens!! Screen can give you inaccurate schedules. A common scene in many Saudi airports. Officers lack a smile and can be rude sometimes.

Update for Jeddah Saudi Arabia

by web-administrator (August, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by KH) Just flew out of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia 2nd time this year. Hard Benches inside and PA system is very loud and noisy. Official taxi (not the one where people come up to ask you if you want a ride) from airport to south city center (say intercontinental hotel) is 85 SAR ~23USD. Check in with the taxi dispatcher waiting outside by the curb/counter and he will give you a receipt. You must pay first so make sure you change money inside the airport. Same price when arriving at north or south terminal. North Terminal is generally foreign airlines and Saudia is South Terminal. but now South terminal also handles some foreign carriers - Korean and Air France. Caution, not all Taxi drivers know this and will automatically take you to the North Terminal. I should know since i made this mistake when flying Air France.

Hajj Terminal

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Where do i start!!! This airport is disgraceful.. The staff are so rude and arrogant.. Smirk at you, walk off whilst seeing you through passport control without any explanation and leave you standing until they decide to come back.. Seats were metal and very uncomfortable. Toilets were dirty. I used the hajj terminal so can only review that.
