How to get to Hajj

The closest airport to Mecca is King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED) in Jeddah. During Hajj, many airlines operate additional services to Jeddah.

The airport has three terminals. The North Terminal is used for international flights, the South Terminal is used for domestic flights, and the Hajj Terminal is used exclusively for Hajj. The Hajj terminal mainly operates charter flights, however there are some other passenger services scheduled as well.
