Saudi low-cost carrier flynas has taken delivery of four new Airbus A320neo aircraft in the last two weeks of October 2023, as part of its ambitious expansion plan.

Under the title “We connect the world with the Kingdom,” flynas is aligning its efforts with the national strategy of civil aviation in Saudi Arabia.

The aim is to accommodate a staggering 330 million passengers and welcome 100 million tourists while increasing the number of international destinations connected to the Kingdom to more than 250 by 2030.

Boosting A320neo Fleet

With the addition of these four state-of-the-art aircraft, flynas now boasts a fleet of 43 A320neo aircraft, constituting over 70% of its total fleet.

The A320neo is renowned for its advanced technology, eco-friendliness, and remarkable fuel efficiency.

The latest expansion has catapulted flynas to a fleet size of 60 aircraft, including four A330 wide-body aircraft, marking an impressive growth rate of over 100% in just two years.

Bander Almohanna, the CEO and Managing Director of flynas, has shared his enthusiasm for this significant fleet expansion.

He stated, “The rapid growth in flynas’ fleet during the last period while the industry and the supply chain are facing challenges reflects the company’s reliability and its strategic partnership with the top aircraft producers in the world to continue with its plans to increase its fleet size and complete taking delivery of the new aircraft.”

A Vision for Growth

Almohanna went on to highlight the remarkable achievement of receiving 15 new aircraft within just 10 months of the total 19 A320neo aircraft scheduled for delivery in 2023.

This falls within an order of purchasing 120 aircraft from Airbus, amounting to more than 32 billion riyals. This commitment clearly demonstrates flynas’ resolve to achieve its strategy of growth and expansion.

Their goal is to increase their fleet size and multiply the seating capacity of domestic and international flights.

This expansion is not only in line with the objectives of the Pilgrims Experience Program (PEP) to facilitate access to the two holy mosques but also in alignment with the national strategy of civil aviation to enable national airlines to play a pivotal role in connecting the world with the Kingdom.

International Connectivity

flynas has become a prominent player in the aviation industry, connecting more than 70 domestic and international destinations through a network of over 1500 weekly flights.

Since its inception in 2007, the airline has flown more than 60 million passengers, making travel accessible to a wide audience. However, flynas doesn’t plan to stop here.

The airline aspires to expand its reach even further and aims to serve 165 domestic and international destinations, aligning with the objectives of the ambitious Saudi Vision 2030.
