The ruling on assuming Ihram from Jeddah for whoever arrives by airplane

What is the ruling on whoever intends to perform Hajj arriving from one of the countries (outside of Saudi Arabia) and his plane lands in the airport of Jeddah while he has not assumed Ihram; then he assumed Ihram from Jeddah? What must he do (as expiation for that)?

If the plane landed in Jeddah and he is from the people of Ash-Sham or Egypt, then he assumed Ihram from Rabigh. He goes to Rabigh in a car or by some other transport and he assumes Ihram from Rabigh. He does not assume Ihram from Jeddah. If he came from Najd and he did not assume Ihram until he landed in Jeddah, he goes to As-Sayl, and it is the valley of Qarn, and he assumes Ihram from there. If he assumes Ihram from Jeddah and he does not go to the Miqat (to assume Ihram), he must slaughter one sheep that is sufficient for sacrificing. He must sacrifice it in Makkah for the poor people or he may share it in the sacrifice of a seventh of a camel or a seventh of a cow. This is to make his Hajj or Umrah acceptable. And success is from Allah.
