Air taxis To Take Off In Saudi Arabia This Hajj Season!

The streets of Riyadh are about to witness a futuristic twist with the introduction of Air taxis. In a move aimed at solving traffic congestion and making commuting smoother, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Transport and Logistic Services, Saleh al-Jasser, has unveiled plans to test air taxis and drones during the upcoming Hajj season.

Soaring above the cityscape, gliding effortlessly toward your destination without being bogged down by traffic jams. These air taxis promise just that for this year’s pilgrims in Saudi Arabia. Minister Saleh Al-Jasser highlighted that these cutting-edge modes of transportation, including taxi applications, will offer pilgrims a unique and convenient way to travel during the busy Hajj and Umrah seasons.

One of the stars of this aerial revolution is the electric plane Lilium, which operates solely on electric power. These eco-friendly aircraft will ferry pilgrims from King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah to nearby hotels near the Grand Mosque in Makkah. They aim to provide a seamless journey for worshippers embarking on their spiritual pilgrimage.

As Air taxis take to the skies, it’s clear that Saudi Arabia is not just envisioning the future but actively building it. With each innovative step, the Kingdom is making life simpler and more convenient for pilgrims, ensuring that their spiritual journey is as smooth and memorable as possible.
