flynas, a prominent low-cost airline in the Middle East and the national carrier of Saudi Arabia has recently declared its plan to introduce new direct flight routes between Jeddah and Bishkek, Osh in Kyrgyzstan, and Almaty in Kazakhstan. Additionally, the airline has decided to enhance the flight frequency between Jeddah and Tashkent, the capital city of Uzbekistan, in alignment with the Air Connectivity Program (ACP) partnership agreement.
The recent partnership between flynas and ACP, formed in April of this year, marks a significant milestone in promoting tourism growth in Saudi Arabia and strengthening the relationship between Central Asia and the Kingdom. Commencing on August 20th, flynas will initiate direct flights from Osh, the second-largest city in Kyrgyzstan, followed by flights from Bishkek, the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, to King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah on September 2nd. These routes will operate with three weekly direct flights, resulting in a total of six weekly flights connecting the two cities.
Furthermore, flynas plans to enhance the connectivity between Almaty and Jeddah by introducing two weekly direct flights from September 2nd. This move is in line with the larger goal of the Saudi ecosystem to attract 100 million tourists annually to the Kingdom by 2030.
As of August 20th, travelers from Tashkent will have more options as flynas improves its services with an increase to three weekly direct flights to Jeddah. This development builds upon the success of the route’s initial launch on September 14th, 2022, and is the result of the collaboration between a thriving domestic ecosystem and ACP’s expertise in developing strong air routes and ensuring their sustainability.
At present, flynas has an extensive network that covers 70 domestic and international destinations, with a frequency of 1,500 weekly flights. Since its establishment in 2007, flynas has served over 60 million passengers. With an emphasis on expansion, flynas aims to extend its reach even further by catering to a total of 165 domestic and international destinations, which aligns with the objectives of Vision 2030 and contributes to enhanced air connectivity within the Kingdom.
