Al-ula

Getting there & away

A new airport located 60km from Al-Ula is planned for the future. In theory, it should be completed by 2009, but check for progress.

In the meantime, daily flights leave from Riyadh to Hail, daily from Jeddah to Medina (399km from Al-Ula), or twice weekly from Jeddah to Al-Wedjh airport (240km from Al-Ula). Hotels charge SR1500 for an airport pick-up from Al-Wedjh.

Saptco (884 1344) runs buses to Al-Ula from Jeddah (SR110) and Riyadh (SR170).
