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 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.
