flyadeal celebrates 2 million passengers

Saudi Arabia’s low-fare airline and the Kingdom’s third-largest carrier flyadeal recently crossed another major milestone — within 13 months of its first flight, it has welcomed its 2 millionth customer on-board. 

“We are grateful to have won the trust and confidence of the people in the Kingdom,” said Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal. “Carrying 2 million customers in just over a year of operations is a feat not many airlines can claim to have achieved. We started with two daily flights last year. Since then, we’ve operated more than 15,000 flights over 400 days — an unprecedented record in the Kingdom. We’re looking forward to flying many more millions in the months to come.” 

The Kingdom’s newest airline looks to cement its position as the true low-cost airline in the Kingdom by offering customers the best service for the lowest fares while constantly enhancing its digital capabilities.

“Future plans for flyadeal include new domestic routes and destinations, international flights, and fleet expansion. The latter will be supported by three Airbus A320 CEOs, which will join the existing fleet of eight aircraft by the end of 2018,” added Korfiatis. “Further, we will soon sign a deal for 50 new aircraft with one of the two major aircraft manufacturers in the world. We are at a very exciting stage of our lifecycle. Stay tuned for more details in the weeks to come.”

The CEO thanked industry partners who have actively supported and contributed to the airline’s recent successes.

Lamborghini wows luxury car show in Jeddah

Lamborghini Saudi Arabia participated in the EXCS International Luxury Motor Show, which was held in Jeddah March 14-17.
Wayne Banoub, COO of Samaco Automotive Company, the exclusive dealer of Lamborghini in the Kingdom, said: “Lamborghini cars are known worldwide as one of the most sophisticated cars, this famous brand has wide recognition in Saudi Arabia in particular and in the region in general; in view of its deep roots, elegance and development, it is one of the first luxury car brands that appeared in the Saudi market.”
Banoub said Lamborghini’s sales have doubled in Saudi Arabia since Samaco acquired its distribution rights last year.
“Over the years, this brand has played hard to fortify its place in the market and achieve a substantial portion in the market of luxury sports cars. Since Samaco got its dealership in Saudi Arabia, its sales have doubled and even exceeded our quota.”
Launched in 2018, the Urus is the world’s first sport SUV, delivering best-in-class lightweight technologies, with innovation in design and engineering.
The Urus features a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp at 6,000 rpm, maximum 6,800 rpm, and 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,250 rpm. With 162.7 hp/l, the Urus claims one of the highest power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio.
Claimed as the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record holder, completing a 20.6 km lap in just 6:44.97 minutes, the Aventador SVJ is fitted with a naturally aspirated V12 engine which produces 770 HP and torque of 720 Nm partied with a 7-speed automatic transmission model ISR.
The Aventador SVJ is designed to achieve high performance and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/hour in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 350 km/hour. The car is limited to 900 production units only.
The 12th edition of EXCS was held amid intense competition in the Saudi luxury car sector. The motor show provides a platform for luxury car companies and dealers in Saudi Arabia to showcase the latest models that arrived in the Kingdom during the year.
The luxury car sector is one of the fastest growing sectors of the automotive industry in Saudi Arabia, thanks to the increasing demand for this category of vehicles.
Lamborghini Car Owners Club organized a visit for a number of the club members to Lamborghini’s pavilion at the International Luxury Motor Show, where they interacted with other visitors, discussing the many features of Lamborghini cars.
