LONDON – Saudi low-cost carrier flynas has inducted two widebody Airbus A330s into its fleet, to better connect Saudi Arabia to the Saudi Kingdom. 

On 20 December the Middle East low-cost airline announced that it had introduced the two widebody Airbus A330-300 aircraft into its fleet. This is to aid the carrier in expanding its capacity for the ever-busy Hajj travel period.

The aircraft, registered as HZ-NE22 and HZ-NE24, previously operated with Turkish Airlines.

Operational service from March 2023

The Hajj period is one of the busiest periods where the Kingdom will receive an influx of inbound Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages from all corners of the world. In addition, the airline also disclosed that the new A330s will allow the airline to expand and venture into new markets whilst supporting the existing routes. 

The two new Airbus A330s arrived at Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport successfully and are now ready to expand the low-cost carriers’ operations and networks, while also doubling its fleet size to better serve religious-oriented performers and tourists. 

Though Hajj is still around the corner, the two A330s are expected to be put into commercial service in March 2023, where they will first contribute to the increase in the number of passengers to new medium-to-long-haul destinations.

This goes hand-in-hand with the Saudi National Civil Aviation Strategy and the National Tourism Strategy.

Flynas network expansion

With the airline’s growth and expansion plans revealed in early 2022, flynas aims to connect the Saudi Kingdom to the world, with 165 destinations throughout Saudi Araba and internationally.

Since its establishment in 2007, the airline has successfully transported more than 60 million passengers. flynas has grown substantially and has supported the drive of tourism in Saudi Arabia and the greater middle eastern region. 

Moreover, the airline also announced that it will increase its orders logbook of 250 new aircraft after its board of directors greenlighted the move. This bold move will make the airline become the largest low-cost carrier in the Middle East and North Africa. 

Flynas is not your ordinary low-cost airline. The airline received the Skytrax International Award as the Best Low-Cost Airline in the Middle East in 2022 for the fifth year consecutively since 2017, an impressive streak.

This is a legitimate award after receiving criticisms over the years on its methodology of ranking the airline. The award itself is solely derived from results based on extensive surveys measuring travellers’ satisfaction. 

The Saudi airline also achieved one of the highest ranking in the Official Airline Rating by APEX, a non-profit organisation, which is a non-profit organisation, one of the most respected and prestigious international airline associations. 

As many as 600 carriers of numerous categories i.e low-cost, premium included in the survey globally, flynas is currently placed in the 4-star low-cost carrier category, which is the highest tier as far as low-cost carrier goes.

In addition, flynas has also been ranked as the Leading Low-Cost Airline in the Middle East in 2022 by the World Travel Awards for the eighth consecutive year respectively.
