Saudi king packs more than 500 tons of luggage for nine-day trip

Overpacking is an understatement for the Saudi king.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz is heading to Indonesia this week for a nine-day trip and he’s taking more than 500 tons of luggage with him, according to reports.

Abdul-Aziz’s over-the-top cargo load – which is about three times as heavy as a blue whale – includes two Mercedes-Benz S600 limousines and two electric elevators, the Washington Post reported.

Air-freight service provider PT Jasa Angkasa Semesta told the Jakarta Post that the company will be handling the Saudi king’s 506 tons of cargo for his March 1-9 visit.

“We have been officially appointed to handle all [cargo] belonging to the king’s entourage aircraft,” said company president Adji Gunawan, adding that 572 workers will be hired to deal with the load.

Abdul-Aziz’s 620-person entourage will arrive in Indonesia ahead of him.

Traveling in extravagant style is common among Saudi royals.

Abdul-Aziz’s trip to Indonesia will mark the first time in 46 years that a Saudi king has visited the world’s largest Muslim nation, according to the Washington Post.
