flyadeal starts daily flights to Tabuk

flyadeal, Saudi Arabia’s low-cost airline, has announced that it will be operating flights daily to Tabuk from May 3. The northern city is the latest addition to the airline’s growing network, which now comprises seven key destinations in the Kingdom.
The launch of the new route has been made possible by the recent arrival of “Al-Qaws,” flyadeal’s sixth new Airbus A320 aircraft.
Ticket prices start from SR108 ($29) between Tabuk and Jeddah and SR198 ($53) between Tabuk and Riyadh, if booked sufficiently early.
“The city of Tabuk is currently the center of significant developmental activity with the NEOM project at its forefront. The new project will boost the economy of the Kingdom, and also have a positive impact on its aviation sector,” said Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal.

Flynas, KAIA gear up to serve pilgrims with a smile

In cooperation with King Abdul Aziz International Airport (KAIA), Saudi low-cost carrier Flynas has launched the “Smile for a More Beautiful Hajj” initiative. The campaign aims to motivate the airport’s employees from both the government and private sectors to establish better interactions with pilgrims and improve the quality of their job performance.
Employees who perform well in terms of providing services to the pilgrims, rapid delivery and friendliness, will be presented with free Flynas tickets to any local or international destinations.
The most deserving employees will be nominated through conducting unannounced tours during the arrival and departure periods, and analyzing employee interaction via surveillance cameras.
Essam bin Fuad Noor, director general of King Abdul Aziz International Airport, said that the initiative aims to urge and encourage the airport’s employees from both government and private sectors, to enhance the culture of smiling and hospitality.
He said the initiative is in line with the directives of the government, which is committed to supporting all such programs that serve the pilgrims. The program also enjoys “unlimited support” from the president of the General Authority of Civil Aviation, Noor added.
“Such initiatives will create positive impressions for pilgrims, especially because the airport is the first destination of most pilgrims. We trust the Saudi youth and their ability to create this positive impression and hope they will strive to carry out their duties in cooperation with Flynas,” he said.
Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Musained, director general of corporate communications and spokesperson for Flynas, said: “This initiative is part of our social responsibility to serve pilgrims and visitors by redoubling our efforts and helping pilgrims with a smile and distinctive service.”
Al-Musained added: “This initiative will motivate service providers at the airport to reflect the bright and honorable image of the Kingdom, of goodness and kindness, and highlight our authentic hospitality by providing pilgrims with amenities and warm gestures before they return to their home country with the best impression of the Kingdom, government and citizens. By doing so, this initiative will convey the authentic Arab and Islamic values in hospitality, and give pilgrims the most beautiful memories, as serving pilgrims is a great honor for every Saudi citizen.”
“Smile for a More Beautiful Hajj” campaign is part of Flynas’ “Your Smile” initiative.
