Book hotels through Saudia website for quarantine: Airline official to Saudi-bound passengers
Tarik A Alowaidi, country manager of Saudi Airlines in Bangladesh, today asked all Saudi-bound Bangladeshi expatriate workers to book their hotels for quarantine stays through the airline's holiday website.
Talking to The Daily Star over telephone, he urged all Saudi-bound passengers not to gather in front of the airline's office in the capital during the ongoing second wave of Covid-19 to book hotel stays.
"No hotel confirmation will be accepted unless booked through the Saudia Holidays website," he also said.
He requested all Saudi-bound Bangladeshis to confirm their quarantine hotel a minimum of 72 hours before their flight departure through the Saudia Holidays website https://holidaysbysaudia.com.
For hotel booking confirmation, Alowaidi requested Saudi-bound passengers to contact their respective employer/Kaphil/company/concerned travel agency, or go to the website.
"If any Bangladeshi passenger misses their flight or if they need to reschedule their flights, Saudia will issue fresh ticket and will accommodate them in other flights without taking any charge."
He said quarantine package reservation must be done according to the first point of entry.
Upon confirming their ticket and quarantine hotel package, passengers will have to complete their PCR test within 72 hours of flight departure, he also said
