Saudia Airlines refuses to fly female passengers who expose arms or legs

On the passengers code of conduct section of their website Saudia asks that travellers are not ‘clothed in a manner that would cause discomfort or offence to other passengers. Women exposing legs or arms, or wearing too thin or too tight clothes…’”

This reflects the Islamic assumption that it is a woman’s responsibility to make sure that men aren’t tempted. If they are, it is the woman’s fault. On Saudia Airlines, she must cover her arms and legs to make sure she isn’t causing men “discomfort or offence.”

“Saudia Airlines refuses to fly passengers who expose arms or legs,” by Ravneet Ahluwalia, Independent, August 9, 2017:

Saudia Airlines has issued a strict dress code for passengers and stated that it will refuse to fly people who deviate from it.

The airline is the national carrier of Saudi Arabia, a country which follows a conservative interpretation of Sunni Islam, Wahhabism.

On the passengers code of conduct section of their website Saudia asks that travellers are not “clothed in a manner that would cause discomfort or offence to other passengers. Women exposing legs or arms, or wearing too thin or too tight clothes and men wearing shorts exposing legs.”

The airline already has rules for its customers which adhere to the laws of the Kingdom. Saudia flights are an alcohol free zone as it is illegal to import or consume alcohol in Saudia Arabia….
