    An Extended Layover in South Terminal

             

    27.7.2018

    Pros: Saudia's Lounge has wifi, and a safe place to wait for your flight

    Cons: airport is shambolic, public conveniences outside of Saudia's lounge are apalling

    This pertains to Terminal South the Saudia Terminal.

    Transit Passengers arriving off a Saudia flight can make use of a transit lounge prior to transit security. The transit lounge is possibly the only quiet(ish) place in the terminal.

    I would actually advise Business Class Passengers with any lay over longer than 6 hours to use this publically available lounge as well (there is a bathroom on site, and water and juices are available). But, please take the blanket and pillow with you from your seat as nothing is provided to help you get comfortable. (Business Class passengers can ask the crew, who in my experience have provided economy blankets and pillows for your transit).

    The transit security is cursory, and I must say, the checks aren't thorough by any means, and they're slow.

    The area post transit security is diabolical, there are no where near enough seats for the amount of people passing through, and the cafes are limited and very expensive.

    The Saudia lounge helps though to make your transit more bearable, with coffee, food options and refreshments available around the clock. However, there is no customer service at all, and the staff are borderline agressive. So, don't expect a smile from anyone based at the airport.

    The lounge has a selection of seats, but no day beds or chaise longues, so it's good for only a few hours wait. Nothing more.

    Note that there is a secondary security screening at Gate 7 for UK, US, and Canada flights – and you will want to leave early to pass through these formalities (again, they're slow and not very thorough).

    No Wifi access for international numbers on transit. All coonections through Saudi Airline requires a minimum of 7 hours. Toilets and other facilities in awful sanitary condition. Smoking by staff inside terminal building, including at the scanners by security staff.

    Jeddah King Abdulaziz Airport Review

    South Terminal – I had an unfortunate 9 hour overnight layover and it was the worst travel experience I’ve ever had. I have to start with the most pressing issue which is the toilets. There are only 2 small toilets in the transit area so there are always queues (and I’m a man so I can’t imagine what the ladies toilets are). It is filthy, the floor is always wet, people washing their feet in the sink so no chance of washing your hands, no tissues and specks of feces in the toilet bowl. There’s very limited seating area so if you manage to get one and travelling alone, you better have a large bladder as you need to hold on to that seat. No temperature control at all so the ac was blasting arctic wind. Food choices are almost non-existent. If only the wi-fi is working, i could have passed the time a little quicker. Overall, avoid the airport like a plague.
