The press service of the airline reported about it in a statement.

The reason for suspending flights is due to the temporary ban imposed by the Saudi government on entering the country for travel or pilgrim purposes. Tourists and pilgrims from 25 countries, including Uzbekistan, are temporarily prohibited to visit Saudi Arabia. It is explained by the need to prevent the risk of coronavirus spread.

At the same time, in the near future the airline will organize several flights to Saudi Arabia solely for the purpose of returning citizens of Uzbekistan from there.
