Flynas, the Saudi national carrier, announced on Monday that they will be adding ten new destinations to their summer 2020 schedule. The new routes will be available from Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Qassim from May 19, 2020 and include Salzburg and Vienna (Austria), Tirana (Albania), Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt), Salalah (Oman), Sarajevo (Bosnia & Herzegovina), Baku (Azerbaijan) and Tbilisi and Batumi (Georgia). Each of the new destinations will be serviced by 3-8 weekly flights.

Speaking on the summer 2020 route expansion, Flynas CEO, Mr. Bander Almohanna commented on the remarkable success achieved by the airline during the previous two summer seasons, with the addition of new destinations, formerly lacking direct service from Saudi Arabia. Additionally, Mr. Almohanna reiterated the carrier’s desire to select destinations that don’t require visas for Saudis, allowing ease of travel and to encourage the exploration of new cultures and civilizations.

Founded in 2007, Flynas is the national carrier of Saudi Arabia and leading LCC in the Middle East. The carrier operates over 1,200 weekly flights to 35 domestic and international destinations with a fleet of 30 Airbus A320s. The airline also has 120 A320neos on order, of which six have been delivered so far. Since its founding, Flynas has carried over 50 million passengers from its bases in Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Abha. In 2019, the carrier served 7.6 million guests, a 15 percent increase year-over-year, and received the prestigious Skytrax award for ‘Middle East’s Best Low-Cost Airline’ – the third year in a row.
