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 and Umrah 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.
International flights (both Hajj and Umrah), as well as domestic flights, can be taken to and from the Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Airport in Medina.
