flynas, the Saudi major low-cost airline, has unveiled its latest network addition with direct flights connecting the vibrant cities of Brussels and Jeddah to commence in December.

This latest expansion is the outcome of flynas’ continued collaboration with the national Air Connectivity Program (ACP) and continues the airline’s ambitious strategy to broaden its international network.

Furthering the National Aviation Strategy

flynas has certainly been busy with its international network expansion of late, and the latest route announcement continues the objectives outlined in the National Aviation Strategy.

By 2030, Saudi Arabia aims to welcome a staggering 330 million passengers and entice 100 million tourists, a transformation that positions the Kingdom as a global travel and tourism powerhouse.

With more than 250 international destinations on the horizon, Saudi Arabia’s vision for the future looks incredibly promising.

Notably, this expansion also contributes to the objectives of the Pilgrim Experience Program, designed to simplify access to the Two Holy Mosques.


For travelers, this news means access to more destinations with unmatched convenience. Commencing on December 2, flynas is set to inaugurate its maiden direct flight from the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah to Brussels Airport.

Travelers can look forward to three weekly flights, ensuring flexible travel options to suit their schedules.

Management Statements

Bander Almohanna, the CEO and Managing Director of flynas, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “With the addition of this new route connecting Jeddah to the Belgian capital, Brussels, flynas continues to strengthen its position as a globally leading low-cost airline and expand its growing network of destinations within our strategic partnership with ACP.”

Ali Rajab, CEO of ACP, echoes this sentiment by emphasizing the pivotal role of Europe in Saudi Arabia’s aviation market.

He explains, “Europe remains a pivotal market for Saudi Arabia. Building upon the successful launch of the Marseille-Jeddah route by flynas last year, introducing this new route to Brussels is a significant step forward in our ongoing commitment to bolster air connectivity with Europe.”

“We are eager to continue facilitating improved access for European travelers to the Kingdom by collaborating with both local and international airlines.”

Rajab extends his gratitude to key figures in the aviation and tourism sectors who have supported their mission to strengthen air connectivity to the Kingdom.

Flynas Network

flynas boasts an extensive network, connecting over 70 domestic and international destinations. With more than 1,500 weekly flights and over 60 million passengers served since its inception in 2007, flynas has established itself as a preferred choice for travelers.

The airline’s growth plan is equally ambitious, with a target of reaching 165 domestic and international destinations by 2030, perfectly aligned with the goals set forth in Saudi Vision 2030.
