Saudi carrier flynas expands reach with new base at Madinah Airport

Following a recent agreement, Saudi Arabia’s flag carrier flynas is set to become the sole low-cost airline operating from four bases within the Kingdom.

In a significant development, flynas has inked a deal with Tibah Airports Operation Co. to establish its latest operations hub at Madinah Airport in line with its expansion and growth plans, according to a press release.

This expansion also aligns with the goals outlined in the National Civil Aviation Strategy, which seeks to facilitate national air carriers in playing a pivotal role in connecting Saudi Arabia with the global aviation network.

Additionally, it parallels the Pilgrims Experience Program’s goals, which aim to enhance access to the two holy mosques.

Bander Al-Mohanna, CEO and managing director of flynas, said: “Our investment in the new operations center at Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Madinah, which is our fourth center in the Kingdom, comes within the framework of enhancing our operational capabilities and diversifying our international and domestic destinations and routes.”

He added: “The step is in accordance with our strategy for growth and expansion, and it confirms our confidence in the potential of the Saudi market and the ambitious national goals for the air transport sector.”
