Wego reports that Flynas, Saudi Arabia’s budget airline, currently limited to routes solely to Dubai from the Kingdom, is set to expand its reach by extending services to various airports across the UAE by September 2024. 


Presently, Flynas operates flights from Riyadh, Jeddah, Medina, and Dammam to Dubai International Airport in the UAE. Until now, travelers opting for this budget airline from the Kingdom have only had access to Dubai in the UAE.

However, the airline company has announced the initiation of five new routes linking the Kingdom to three new airports across the UAE, commencing in September of this year. These fresh routes encompass flights from Riyadh to Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport, flights from Jeddah and Medina to Abu Dhabi International Airport, and flights from Jeddah and Medina to Sharjah International Airport.

Flynas’ expansion is set to benefit travelers from both nations, offering affordable tickets and enhancing travel between Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Moreover, this initiative aligns with the Saudi Aviation Strategy, which aims to achieve 330 million annual air travelers and connect the Kingdom with 250 international destinations. Additionally, the introduction of flights to Medina will greatly simplify travel for UAE residents intending to visit the Kingdom for religious purposes.

With these five new routes added, Flynas will offer more options for travelers between both countries by introducing 20 daily direct flights in September. Despite its reputation as a budget airline, Flynas maintains comfort standards, including affordable premium economy and business classes for those seeking a superior travel experience.
