Star Alliance member Aegean is currently selling cheap tickets to Jeddah from Prague and Brussels. Prices start at only €305 and even include 23 kg of checked luggage. There’s availability from November through February.
To enter Saudi Arabia, you must currently fill out this registration immunization information form within 72 hours before departure.
Our calendar displays all available dates for trips of 8-28 days. Once you’ve selected your preferred route and dates, it can redirect you to Aegean’s booking site:
All flights should be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft. Both flights (to Athens and then to Jeddah) take roughly 3 to 4 hours.
You can also fly from Warsaw for €285, but you’ll have a layover of roughly 9 hours on the way back. A great chance to explore Athens, if you’re up to it after such a short red-eye flight.
Search & Book
The fare rules state absolutely no restrictions. The best way to search for available flights is to use our calendar above. You can also search on Google Flights. The flights should then be booked on Aegean’s website.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
The tickets are issued in booking class P. To give you an example, flying from Prague should get you:
