In parallel with lifting the ban on international travel for citizens flynas announces its readiness to launch 12 global destinations for the summer 2021 season


flynas, the Saudi national air carrier and leading low-cost airline in the Middle East, has announced its readiness to resume global flights in parallel with the decision to lift the ban on international air travel for Saudi citizens as of May 17th 2021.

On this occasion, the CEO at flynas Mr. Bander AlMohanna reiterated the airline’s preparedness to resume its international flights as per the directives of the General Authority of Civil Aviation and relevant entities. He commended the unlimited support provided by the Kingdom’s government to the Saudi airline industry throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

AlMohanna also emphasized the airline’s commitment to the highest safety and precautionary measures that ensure safe and secure flights for guests traveling to all destinations, with 91% of flynas cabin crew fully vaccinated to date. He added “flynas is launching exciting routes this summer to around 12 global destinations in a step that will add value to our offerings and enhance our year-round network of flights. Our seasonal destinations include Salzburg, Kiev, Tashkent, Tirana, Hurghada, Salalah, Vienna, Sarajevo, Baku, Tbilisi, Batumi, and Sharm El Sheikh.”

Moreover, AlMohanna stated “Following the remarkable success of flynas’ summer destinations during past seasons in 2018 and 2019, we have decided to continue growing our flight network by adding new direct flights that support our expansion strategy and open new connections to destinations that do not have a current air route with Saudi Arabia.” He also highlighted flynas’ keenness to offer numerous destinations during the summer to encourage travelers to explore new countries and cultures.

AlMohanna concluded his statement by underscoring flynas’ continued pursuit of its ambitious expansion strategy as demonstrated by its aircraft purchase deal signed with Airbus to acquire 120 A320neo aircraft at a total cost of 32 billion Saudi riyals. So far, the airline has received 15 new aircraft as per the agreement.
