Flyadeal completes first year of operations

JEDDAH, September 23, 2018

Flyadeal, Saudi Arabia's low-cost airline, completes one year of operations today (September 23), which coincides with the country’s National Day.

In a span of one year, the airline has reached several milestones, providing a broad range of air service options, contributing to the expansion of the air transport industry – one of the pillars of Vision 2030.

"Since the very start of flyadeal, customers have shared their delight with low fares and the new flight services available - and we have responded. What started as a single flight between Jeddah and Riyadh last national day has now become 56 daily flyadeal flights between eight cities in Saudi Arabia." the airline said in a statement.

In less than one year since the start of operations, flyadeal has flown over 1.5 million passengers.

Established as part of Saudia’s Transformation 2020 programme, flyadeal was a newcomer to the domestic air travel market, bringing something different, focused on innovation and personality. Its 24 daily flights between Jeddah and Riyadh – with prices starting from SR108 ($28.7) – is a reflection of the flyadeal mission to provide low fares with high value - for everyone.

Flyadeal also recently became the first airline in the kingdom to open female cabin crew positions to Saudis. In addition, the airline has achieved platinum level in Saudisation and the number of Saudi employees has grown by almost 250 per cent over the last year.

Flyadeal is the fastest-growing airline in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and in just one year of flying has broadened brand awareness, expanded rapidly and grown its customer base.

"We look forward to welcoming even more new customers onboard, offering convenient and affordable flight options," the airline said. - TradeArabia News Service
