Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA), the flag carrier of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, wishes to inform its guests about a new directive from the US Transport Security Administration (TSA).

The directive is issued to all air carriers that fly to the United States.

It states that travelers with powder-like substances over 350 ml (12 ounces) placed in their carry-on bags may be subject to additional screening, and if the powder cannot be cleared by security officials, they will be prohibited from being carried in the cabin of the aircraft.

Guests travelling with SAUDIA to any point in the United States are advised to take note of the new regulation, which took effect 30 June, 2018.

SAUDIA currently flies to three points in the United States, nonstop from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: New York (JFK), Washington Dulles (IAD), and Los Angeles (LAX).
