Pakistani Umrah pilgrims at Saudi Airport faces delays and long queues

JEDDAH - People travelling from the south terminal of King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah said that they have been facing delays and long queues to board the flights.

The airport’s Director General Essam Fuad Anwar said that there have been no delays and a large number of Umrah pilgrims have been crowding the airport, reported the Saudi Gazette link .

“This time every year, the lounges get overcrowded with Umrah performers because it is the peak season when the number of visitors increases and the number of flights from and to KAIA rises dramatically,” he said.

The airport is currently operating flights three times its capacity, said Anwar. The total number of people at the terminals has reached 100,000 a day.
