Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAA) will resume its flights to the United States, following a brief suspension due to volcanic ash over the Atlantic Ocean. Conditions have improved and flight paths between the Kingdom and the U.S. are no longer hazardous, said Abdullah Al-Ajhar, Assistant to the SAA Director General for Public Relations. The first flights are scheduled to depart on Tuesday from Washington to Jeddah and Riyadh at 12 pm local time, he added.
