RIYADH: The Haramain High-Speed Railway management has increased the number of daily train trips between Madinah and Makkah to more than 100 during the holy month of Ramadan.
The step has been taken to facilitate smooth flow of Umrah pilgrims and visitors in both directions between the two holy cities during the peak annual Umrah season. The railway management has made elaborate arrangements to cope with the huge inflow of Umrah pilgrims and visitors to Saudi Arabia via Prince Muhammad International Airport in Madinah and King Abdulaziz International Airport, Jeddah, during the month of Ramadan.
