Saudi king takes 506 TONS of Luggage for Nine-day Trip To Indonesia (although it does include two limousines and a Pair of elevators).

A Saudi king is taking 506 tons of luggage with him for a nine-day trip to Indonesia.

Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud's huge haul includes two Mercedes-Benz s600 limousines and a pair of elevators.

He is set to visit Indonesia tomorrow to join an enormous entourage of 620 people as well as 800 delegates, including ministers and 25 princes.

Jasa Angkasa Semesta (JAS) has been tasked with the huge operation of lugging the cargo from Saudi Arabia, and has dedicated 572 members of staff to handle it.

The airfreight company's president directorAdji Gunawan told Antara news agency that 63 tons would be unloaded at the Halim Perdanakusuma airport in East Jakarta and the rest would be sent to Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar, Bali, according toThe Jakarta Post.

'We have been officially appointed to handle all cargo belonging to the king’s entourage aircraft,' he said.

It will be the first time in 46 years a Saudi king has visited Indonesia - the world's largest Muslim population.

King Salman is used to traveling in luxury.

Back in September 2015, he booked the entire Four Seasons in Georgetown for his three-night stay in the US, forcing guests who had booked to stay in the 222-room hotel during his visit to be moved to nearby luxury hotels.

A fleet of luxury cars, a hotel covered in gold, and even red carpets were laid down in the parking lot.

And the hotel, where suites run for more than $2,000 a night, added some new touches to suit the king's tastes.

Eyewitnesses told Politico they've seen gilded furniture wheeled into the hotel this week, with red carpets being laid down in the hallway and even on the asphalt of the hotel's parking garage.

'Everything is gold,' one regular told the website. 'Gold mirrors, gold end tables, gold lamps, even gold hat racks.'

A month earlier, he took 1,000 people for a vacation on the French Riviera, closing down an entire beach.
