Flynas, a Saudi low-cost airline, has announced 10 new destinations to be added to the airline’s summer network of routes. The operator has shown continuous growth over the past few years and is expected to keep up the development, especially with the introduction of new destinations.
Where is Flynas headed?
Four of the new routes will see Riyadh King Khalid Airport (RUH) become linked to destinations across Asia and Europe. Flynas will connect the capital of Saudi Arabia to Antalya in Turkey, Yerevan in Armenia, Tivat in Montenegro and Male in The Maldives.
Dammam, the fifth most populous city in Saudi Arabia will also be linked to four new destinations starting this summer. Travelers from Eastern Saudi Arabia, and also Bahrain, will now be able to travel from King Fahd International Airport (KFIA) to Istanbul and Trabzon in Turkey, Tirana in Albania and Salalah in Oman.
Two other new routes will link the city of Jeddah to Bodrum in Turkey and also Salalah in Oman. All of the new flights will use Airbus A320neo aircraft. Most of them will have a frequency of 3-4 flights per week and June 1.
The CEO of Flynas, Bander Almohanna, expressed his thoughts on the development of the route network: “Flynas is keen to continue growing in its operations through upscaling its fleet by 50% during the current year 2023 compared to 2021”. “This approach is in line with the objectives of the Saudi Vision 2030 and the civil aviation strategy to reach 330 million passengers, 250 international destinations, and 100 million tourists annually”.
Flynas started operating in 2007 under the name of Nas Air. The company changed names in 2013 and started steadily growing from there until now, when it has a fleet of 43 aircraft serving 1500 flights every week. More than 70 million passengers travel to more than 70 domestic and international destinations.
