A coastal road connecting Jeddah and Abha was completed in 1979.[2] A SAPTCO bus station connects Abha to other destinations within Saudi Arabia.

Abha Regional Airport (Arabic: مطار أبهـــا, IATA: AHB[3], ICAO: OEAB) is Abha’s main airport. International connections are available to Yemen (Sana’a), Egypt (Cairo), Doha (Qatar) and the UAE (Dubai, Sharjah), as well as to other destinations within Saudi Arabia.

Construction of Dutch-designed Abha Airport began in mid-1975, and flights began in 1977. Before construction of the airport, domestic flights were serviced by the military airport nearKhamis Mushait by Ali Misfer Ibn Misfer who was founder of Aviation in Abha in 1945.

Abha is located in the southern region of Asir at an elevation of 2270 meters (7448 feet) above sea level.[citation needed]. Abha lies on the western edge of Mount al-Hijaz,[2] nearJabal Sawda, claimed by some to be the highest peak in Saudi Arabia.

The climate of Abha is cold and semi-arid (Köppen: BSk)[6] and it is influenced by city’s high elevation.[7][inaccessible source] The city’s weather is generally mild throughout the year, becoming noticeably cooler during the “low-sun” season. Abha seldom sees temperatures rise above 35 °C (95.0 °F) during the course of the year. The city averages 278 millimetres (11 in) of rainfall annually, with the bulk of the precipitation occurring between February and April, with a secondary minor wet season in July and August.

The highest recorded temperature was 40 °C (104 °F) on August 25, 1983, while the lowest recorded temperature was −2 °C (28 °F) on December 29, 1983.[8]
