Hajis saved from baggage check-in formalities


JEDDAH — Companies in charge of accommodation of pilgrims will also be made responsible for shipping their luggage to their destinations, Haj Minister Bandar Al-Hajjar has said.

“This is a new mechanism which has been initiated to facilitate swift and smooth departure of pilgrims,” he said.

Under this mechanism pilgrims will go to the airport without any luggage. They will no longer have to wait at the counters to check-in their baggage.
The minister said the licensed accommodation companies in Makkah and Madinah will transport the luggage to the airport and complete the shipping procedures.

Concerning Zamzam water, which pilgrims are keen to take back home, the minister said it will be shipped onboard the aircraft flying back home after dropping pilgrims.

“Pilgrims will receive their quotas of the blessed water on their arrival in their home countries. They will no longer have to take Zamzam water with them as accompanying luggage when leaving the Kingdom after Haj,” he said.
