JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s Haramain High Speed Railway will resume operations on Wednesday, March 31 with 24-30 daily scheduled trips, increasing to 40-54 during the holy month of Ramadan.

The trains will run from King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah to the stations of Makkah, Madinah and King Abdullah Economic City and will follow precautionary measures to guarantee the safety of passengers.

Train operators will designate exit and entry doors for passengers. Passengers will have their temperatures taken and their health status checked through the Tawakkalna app before they board.

Social distancing measures have also been taken into account and passengers will be provided with designated seats, with numbers restricted to 200 per trip.

The railway services were suspended on March 20, 2020 as the Kingdom took measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 at the outbreak of the pandemic.
