flynas has announced an expansion of operations from its new base at Madinah Airport starting December 1, 2023.

Through this expansion, the airline is now the only carrier with four operational bases across the Kingdom.

New Routes From Madinah Airport

Two new domestic routes are slated to launch from Madinah, with Abha and Tabuk set to commence as part of a commitment to the airport.

International routes are also set to feature with flynas slated to provide service to Dubai, Amman, Baghdad, Istanbul, and Ankara.

These newly announced international routes will work alongside four existing routes to Riyadh, Jerddah, Damam and Cairo.

Thanks to all the launching routes and existing ones, there’ll be 11 routes operated by flynas from Madinah.

The flynas Fleet

flynas currently operates a fleet of 47 aircraft. However, it has a mission to grow this substantially with time.

The airline’s most prominent aircraft type is the A320neo, with 39 active units and over 80 remaining on order. The A320neo works alongside the existing A320-200s, with also orders for the A321neo family.

For widebody flying at Flynas, the low-cost carrier has three Airbus A330-300s in active service with two units in storage, per the latest fleet data.

Comments From flynas Executives

he launch of these routes from our latest operations base coincides with taking delivery of new aircraft to further upscale flynas fleet. We are proud to showcase our commitment to Madinah and to expand offerings for our guests, in line with the objectives of the Pilgrims Experience Program (PEP) to facilitate access to the Two Holy Mosques and the National Civil Aviation Strategy to enable national air carriers to contribute to connecting the Kingdom with 250 International destinations and to reach 330 million passengers and to attract 100 million tourists annually by 2030.

A Summary Of flynas

flynas connects more than 70 domestic and international destinations. The region’s primary low-cost carrier offers more than 1,500 weekly flights and has connected more than 60 million passengers since launching in 2006.

However, to align with the vision of Saudi Arabia, it hopes to have 165 domestic and international destinations, thus representing an increase of more than double its current network in the next six years.
