flyadeal launches first flight to Dammam

flyadeal, Saudi Arabia’s new low-fare airline, flew its first flight to Dammam landing at King Fahd International Airport on Wednesday (Nov. 1).
The new flight from Jeddah non-stop to Dammam is part of flyadeal’s expansion plan across the Kingdom, serving key gateway cities.
Chairman of flyadeal, Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser said: “The early success of flyadeal has been largely attributed to meeting our customers’ demand for new destinations, prompting the start of additional frequencies and launch of new routes in a short period of time. We are pleased to now be expanding to our third destination — Dammam — in just five weeks, since the start of the airline.”
Turki A. Al-Jawini, CEO of Dammam Airports Company (DACO), congratulated Flyadeal on the commencement of operations to and from KFIA. He said the addition of flyadeal to the DACO family will add value to the airport specifically and to the region at large and is on track to contribute to development of tourism in the Eastern Province.
Al-Jawini also indicated that the increased competition among carriers operating in Saudi Arabia will help to drive down costs.
Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal, said: “We are excited to mark yet another milestone for flyadeal as we start flying to Dammam. This was made possible with the arrival of Al-Sayf, our third aircraft, which has helped us broaden our reach across the Kingdom allowing more customers to experience everyday low fares. We are delighted to make our entry into the dynamic industrial hub of Dammam and the Eastern Province. We are launching with one daily flight in the morning and adding an evening flight on Nov. 15. This twice a day schedule was created with both, business and leisure travelers in mind. The flights went on sale on Oct. 24 on flyadeal.com and the sales have been very strong.”
flyadeal’s new route to Dammam was a popular choice among customers on social media platforms. flyadeal is expected to announce new routes in the coming months as it continues to expand operations across Saudi Arabia and the region.

SAMACO gears up to unveil Audi Q8 in October

Samaco Automotive Company, the exclusive dealer for Audi cars in Saudi Arabia, is gearing up to reveal the Audi Q8 — the new face of the Q family — in Saudi Arabia. The new Audi Q8 combines the elegance of a four-door luxury coupé with the practical versatility of a large SUV. 

The Audi Q8 features a sporty design and dynamic performance, which distinguishes it from other SUV cars bearing Audi’s four rings emblem. At 4.99 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.71 meters in height, this sports coupe SUV is longer and lower than its sister model the Q7.

Kerem Tas, general manager of the Audi brand at SAMACO Automotive, said: “This new model is a distinctive addition to the Audi model range. It represents a unique integration between highly sophisticated features, luxury, sports and excellent performance.” 

He added: “Audi is getting ready to launch more all-new models of its A6 and A7 cars during the fourth quarter of this year 2018. Samaco is preparing to open a new sales center for the sale of both new and Audi-approved cars in the Saudi capital Riyadh in the near future to offer an even better service to our customers in the Kingdom.”
