Flynas celebrates Riyadh-New Delhi direct flights

Saudi national air carrier and low-cost airline Flynas recently celebrated the launch of new flights from Riyadh to New Delhi in India. The ceremony was attended by Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Head of Mission to India Tareq Rashwan as well as a delegation from India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation and representatives of Flynas in India, along with a number of Saudi and Indian media personnel.

The increase in the number of flights seeks to meet the growing demand among passengers, especially because Indians are the fourth highest number of travelers in Saudi Arabia — around 3.3 million passengers.

Starting July 1, there will be five flights per week connecting Riyadh and New Delhi, and from October, there will be daily flights. Flynas has also increased flights between Riyadh and Hyderabad from two to four weekly flights.

“The addition of this new destination serves Flynas’ global expansion strategy to extend its geographic reach to meet passengers’ travel needs,” the airline said.

Flynas has added five new destinations this summer: Sarajevo, Vienna, Batumi, Tbilisi and Baku. Besides its geographic expansion, the airline also continues to upgrade its fleet. In 2018, it signed an agreement with Airbus to purchase 20 A321LR and A321XLR aircraft, in addition to a deal of more than $8 billion signed in 2017 to purchase 120 Airbus A320neo aircraft.

The new direct flights will take off from King Khalid International Airport to New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. Flynas passengers can now book their flights through all booking platforms, including sales agents, the airline’s website and app, or by calling its call center.
