Saudi Arabia’s low-fare airline, flyadeal, has received its 11th and final brand-new Airbus A320 of its initial fleet order.
The airline say the new aircraft will enable the airline to extend flying from Riyadh and Dammam.
“flyadeal’s growth story began with the launch of its first flight from Jeddah to Riyadh on National Day 2017. After 16 months of operations and taking our eleventh aircraft we now offer a total of 70 daily flights across our network,” said Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal.
He continued: “The growth we have accomplished in a short period of time is not only a fulfilment of our promise to provide our customers with additional Everyday Low Fares between all the major cities in the Kingdom but is also a reflection of the growing demand for domestic travel.”
Flyadeal said the increase in seat capacity is in line with the airline’s promise to offer “more opportunities to travel for affordable prices throughout the domestic flight network.”
The network spans eight main destinations: Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Qassim, Jazan Abha, Tabuk and Medina.
The airline commenced operations in September 2017, initially serving domestic markets before expanding into regional markets.
