Saudi Arabian low-cost airline flynas has plans for direct flights connecting Casablanca, the largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco, to Jeddah.

In a bid to boost Saudi Arabia’s tourism industry and strengthen ties between nations, flynaswill commence a triweekly service from the beginning of August.

This new air route is a significant milestone resulting from the partnership established with the Air Connectivity Program (ACP).

Stimulating tourism growth

The collaboration between flynas and ACP marks an essential step in contributing to the growth of Saudi Arabia’s tourism sector.

By initiating direct flights between King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah and Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca, Morocco’s economic and business center, flynas aims to enhance air connectivity and promote travel between the two nations.

Flight schedule

Starting from August 3rd, 2023, flynas will operate direct flights on the Casablanca route three times a week. Travelers can take advantage of this convenient schedule, with flights departing on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Tuesdays.

The introduction of this new route not only fosters tourism growth but also strengthens the bilateral ties between Saudi Arabia and Morocco.


Network growth

As flynas and ACP come together to create more opportunities for travelers, it reflects the commitment of both nations to promote cultural exchange and economic cooperation.

This expansion of flynas’ network aligns with Saudi Arabia’s broader efforts to attract 100 million annual tourists to the Kingdom by 2030.

Over the years, flynas has operated an extensive network, covering more than 70 domestic and international destinations, with an impressive frequency of 1,500 weekly flights.

Since its establishment in 2007, flynas has now served over 60 million passengers, showcasing its dedication to offering quality air travel services.

Contributing to Vision 2030

With a strong focus on growth and development, flynas aims to further expand its reach by serving a total of 165 domestic and international destinations. This ambitious goal is in line with the objectives of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s ambitious roadmap for the future.

By providing increased air connectivity within the Kingdom and beyond, flynas plays a pivotal role in supporting Vision 2030’s vision of economic diversification and sustainable development.

The Air Connectivity Program

Let’s take a closer look at the Saudi Air Connectivity Program (ACP), which played a crucial role in making this new route possible.

Established in 2021, the ACP has been instrumental in fostering tourism growth in Saudi Arabia by enhancing air connectivity and developing both existing and prospective air routes.

Throughout 2022 and H1 2023, ACP has made significant progress in enhancing air connectivity in the Kingdom through strategic partnerships in both the domestic and global aviation field

The program serves as a bridge between tourism and aviation stakeholders, working towards the National Tourism Strategy’s vision of establishing Saudi Arabia as a global leader in tourism air connectivity.

flynas has worked progressively in collaboration with the Air Connectivity Program principles and has steadily developed its own route network and built cross-border tourism.

Last month, the low-cost airline announced the launch of direct flights connecting Bishkek and Osh in Kyrgyzstan and Almaty in Kazakhstan to Jeddah. It also increased the frequency of flights between Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan and Jeddah, in line with the partnership agreement with the Air Connectivity Program (ACP).
