flynas, the national Saudi air carrier, has announced the launch of ten new destinations for summer 2020 to depart from Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, and Qassim beginning from the 19th of May 2020.
On this occasion, CEO at flynas Mr. Bander Almohanna outlined the new destinations which will include Salzburg in Austria, Tirana in Albania, Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt, Salalah in Oman, Vienna in Austria, Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Baku in Azerbaijan, and Tbilisi and Batumi in Georgia, all of which will be serviced by 3-8 flights per week.
Almohanna also commended the remarkable success achieved by flynas during previous summer seasons in 2018 and 2019, which enabled the carrier to continue its expansion strategy and launch more destinations in new countries where no direct flights from Saudi Arabia had previously existed. He also reiterated flynas’ keenness to select new destinations that do not require prior visa procedures for Saudis to ease travel for citizens and encourage them to explore new cultures and civilizations through utilizing a wide array of travel options available at a great value.
flynas will continue to pursue its expansion strategy which was culminated by an aircraft purchase deal signed with Airbus to acquire 120 A320neo aircraft valued at 32 billion SAR, from which flynas had received six aircraft so far.
flynas has transported 50 million passengers since its inception in 2007 and has served 7.6 million passengers in 2019, a 15% increase compared to 2018’s 6.6 million passengers.
