Flights To Mecca

There are few places in the world considered as holy as Mecca. The city is a provincial capital of Saudi Arabia, but is more notably the religious capital of Islam. As the birthplace of the prophet Muhammad, Mecca has been the center of Islamic religion and culture for centuries. Pilgrims fly to Mecca using King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED) in Jeddah, and within its storied walls, Mecca contains some of the holiest sites in Islam. The Grand Mosque is quite literally the center of Islamic faith, as Muslims around bow in the direction of the Grand Mosque during daily prayer. The newly constructed Abraj Al-Bait Towers, a government project to provide more facilities for pilgrims, include the third-tallest building and the largest clock face in the world.

Traveling from JED

There are no direct flights to Mecca, but the city is easily accessible from Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International Airport. There are two terminals at JED: one for standard commercial airfare and another specifically for pilgrims. Once landed, your best bet for transportation from Mecca flights is to find a private taxi. The queues of taxis waiting at the airport mean you never have to wait for a ride. You'll have to negotiate your price, but if you share a ride with several people the fare is more than reasonable! Mecca is about a 45-minute taxi trip from the airport, and there are sometimes buses or larger shuttles making the trip as well. They don't necessarily follow a schedule, so don't count on always finding a bus. It is also worth noting that Mecca is open only to practitioners of the Muslim faith.

  • Remove your shoes and belt before approaching the security checkpoint. Items like these are not allowed in the body scanner.
  • Make sure your phone, laptop and other electronic devices are easily accessible. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately.
  • Toothpaste, deodorant and other toiletry items in liquid, gel or cream form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are awesome because they're a piece of cake to remove for the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next journey!
  • Stash any multi-tools or other sharp items inside your checked luggage. Airport security won't permit these on the aircraft.
