I will be travelling from Kochi to London via Riyadh with Saudi Arabian Airlines. Kochi to Riyadh flight lands around 10.15 AM and Riyadh to London flight departs around 11.55 AM. I am unsure about which terminals these flights operate from. Can someone please advise whether this time would be sufficient, and what will happen if the connecting flight is missed ? How is the service and punctuality of Saudi Airlines?

  • Is it one ticket? – Nean Der Thal May 11 '16 at 5:53

    It is purchased as a single ticket from Saudi Airlines. – Chitra May 11 '16 at 8:38

    Chitra, then it is ok, Saudia will handle that with no issues even if you didn't catch it. On-time performance is quite reliable with Saudia. – Nean Der Thal May 11 '16 at 8:41

SV775 COK-RUH arrives at terminal 2 according to flightstats. SV117 RUH-LHR also departs terminal 2 but I could only see that by searching google. According to expertflyer (requires subscription or free trial), the Minimum Connection Time (MCT) for an international to international connection at RUH is 1:30, however SV connections to SV at terminal 2 appear to have a shorter MCT of 1:00. In any case, as long as this is booked on one ticket, the airline will rebook you on a later flight if you miss your connection. You can look on flightstats for statistics relating to the likelihood you will miss your connection. A few days ago, SV775 arrived 2 hours late...
