flynas, Saudi Arabia’s major low-cost airline, has unveiled its latest network addition – direct flights from Jeddah to Osh, the vibrant second-largest city of Kyrgyzstan.

This expansion comes as a result of the collaborative efforts between flynas and the Air Connectivity Program (ACP).

Jeddah – Osh: Central Asia network expansion

The inauguration of this new route was marked by a celebration attended by key representatives from the Air Connectivity Program, flynas, and Jeddah Airports Company (JEDCO).

Together, they recognized the commencement of non-stop flights from King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah to the bustling Osh International Airport.

This milestone marks a significant enhancement to the network of Central Asian destinations offered by the Saudi airline.

Commencing with three weekly flights every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, this newly unveiled route caters to both tourists and residents, delivering seamless and affordable point-to-point travel.

The introduction of these flights not only facilitates travel for individuals eager to explore the treasures of Kyrgyzstan but also provides a bridge for cultural exchange between Saudi Arabia and Central Asia.


The journey doesn’t end here, and flynas has even more in store for its passengers. Looking ahead, the airline is preparing to launch yet another new route in early October, further solidifying its commitment to the region.

This new venture will entail three weekly flights from Jeddah to the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek.

Paving the Way for Saudi Tourism

The partnership between flynas and the Air Connectivity Program is a groundbreaking step towards the realization of Saudi Arabia’s ambitious tourism goals.

Aligned with the broader Saudi ecosystem’s endeavors, which seek to attract 100 million tourists annually by 2030, this strategic collaboration contributes significantly to the growth of Saudi Arabia’s tourism industry.

Established in 2007, flynas has made it’s mark in the aviation industry, connecting millions of passengers across its extensive network.

To date, the airline serves over 70 domestic and international destinations and an impressive frequency of 1,500 weekly flights.

Driven by a passion for growth and innovation, flynas is poised to extend its influence even further. The airline’s vision aligns perfectly with the ambitious objectives of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s transformative plan for the future.

By aiming to serve a total of 165 domestic and international destinations, flynas contributes significantly to the expansion of air connectivity within the Kingdom, thereby enhancing both travel and trade opportunities.
