The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah and the General Organization of Saudi Arabian Airlines signed on Tuesday a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish digital platforms for Umrah pilgrims, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

The deal will also open new destinations to accommodate the growing numbers of Umrah performers.
