Saudi King brings 506 tonnes of luggage on 9-day trip to Indonesia, including two limos

There's a carry-on and checked baggage, but what do you call luggage that weighs 506 tonnes, including two Mercedes limousines and two elevators? It's just a nine-day trip to Indonesia, but Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdul Aziz isn't leaving any of his comforts behind.

It will be the first time in 46 years that a Saudi king has visited the world’s largest Muslim nation, and it comes at a time of heightened attention on the economic links between the two nations and the royal king has come prepared.

As reported by The Washington Post, the Saudi royal is expected to bring 459 metric tonnes of cargo with him on his trip - including two Mercedes-Benz s600 limousines and two electric elevators.

Malaysia is the first stop in a rare month-long tour of Asia by the Saudis seeking to build ties and draw more investments to the oil-rich gulf nation. King Salman is also expected to visit Brunei, Japan, China, the Maldives and Jordan.

Airfreight company PT Jasa Angkasa Semesta (JAS) company had been appointed to handle the cargo, which had already arrived in the country.

Reportedly, the company was employing a total of 572 workers to deal with the Saudi King’s luggage.

Saudi Royals are often known for travelling in grandiose style. King Salman booked out the entire Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown when he visited Washington in 2015. The hotel, one of the most luxurious in the area, has 222 rooms.
