There are a number of airports in Saudi Arabia. However, not all Saudi Arabia airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest Saudi Arabia airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Saudi Arabia.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the largest country on the Arabian Peninsula. It borders Jordan on the northwest, Iraq on the north and northeast, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates on the east, Oman on the southeast, and Yemen on the south, with the Persian Gulf to its northeast and the Red Sea to its west. It is called "the land of the two holy mosques", a reference to Mecca and Medina, Islam's two holiest places. In English, it is most commonly referred to as Saudi Arabia, often as just Saudi by many English-speaking expatriates in the kingdom.
Saudi Arabia's economy is petroleum-based; roughly 75% of budget revenues and 90% of export earnings come from the oil industry. The oil industry comprises about 45% of Saudi Arabia's gross domestic product, compared with 40% from the private sector.
Its geography is surprisingly varied. From the western coastal region (At-Tihamah), the land rises from sea level to a peninsula-long mountain range (jabal al-Hijaz) beyond which are plateaus. The southwestern Asir region has mountains as high as 3,000 metres (9,840 ft) and is known for having the greenest and freshest climate in all of the country, one that attracts many Saudis to resorts such as Taif and Abha in the summer months. The east is primarily rocky or sandy lowland continuing to the shores of the Persian Gulf. The infamous "Empty Quarter" along the country's imprecisely defined southern borders contains the nearly lifeless Rub al-Khali desert.
Saudi Arabia has no permanent year-round rivers or lakes; however, its coastline extends for 2,640 kilometers (1,640 mi) and, on the Red Sea side, offers world-class coral reefs, including those in the Gulf of Aqaba.
Extreme heat and aridity are characteristic of most of Saudi Arabia. It is one of the few places in the world where summer temperatures above 50 C (120 F) are common, while in winter frost or snow can occur in the interior and the higher mountains, although this does not occur annually. Nighttime temperatures in the mid desert can be famously chilly even in summer, as sand gives up daytime heat rapidly once the sun has set. ()
