Saudi low-cost airline flyadeal hikes daily flights between Riyadh and Dubai

Arab News: In order to meet the growing travel demand between Riyadh and Dubai, flyadeal is going to increase daily flights to the emirate, the Saudi Press Agency reported. 

The Kingdom’s low-cost airline has increased the total number of flights operating between King Khalid International Airport and Dubai International Airport to five flights daily, with an average weekly frequency of 33. 

According to Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal, the new flights between Riyadh and Dubai are part of the company’s strategy to broaden its network and strengthen its position in the UAE market. 

This move boosts the Kingdom’s travel sector by connecting it to more international destinations worldwide and offering quality services to tourists and guests. 

According to the SPA, flyadeal recently announced an increase in destinations to 36 domestic and international sectors by June. 

In June last year, the airline expanded its scope of operations by connecting to Amman in Jordan, Tbilisi in Georgia, Azerbaijan’s Baku, Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt and Khartoum. 

There are 24 local and international routes in the low-cost airline network.  

According to the CEO, the airline has a young fleet of 24 Airbus 320 aircraft with an average age of just 30 months. 

He added that the airline had reached 15 million passengers in less than five years, which was quite an achievement in the domestic aviation space.
