First Flight of Beneficiaries of “Makkah Route” Initiative Departs from Morocco to Saudi Arabia

The first flight of the beneficiaries of the "Makkah Route" initiative departed today from Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca, Morocco, heading to Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Madinah.

The "Makkah Route" Initiative is one of the Ministry of Interior's initiatives within the Pilgrim Experience Program, also one of the Saudi Vision 2030 projects.

The initiative entails carrying out all travel procedures needed by the pilgrims in their homeland, including issuing visas electronically, ensuring that pilgrims have a clean bill of health, completing passport procedures at the airport in the country of departure, and coding and sorting the luggage according to the transportation and housing arrangements in the Kingdom.

Upon arrival, the pilgrims are transferred to their places of residence in Makkah and Madinah through designated bus tracks, and their luggage is delivered to them at their residences
