flyadeal launches its first flight from Jeddah to Dubai

JEDDAH: flyadeal launched its first direct flights from Jeddah to Dubai on Thursday, Nov. 25, signalling the company’s first international journey from the airport.

The low-cost airline, a subsidiary of Saudia, now operates six routes to the UAE on a daily basis – with the other five originating from Riyadh.

“We selected Dubai as our first international market because our model, and every low cost carrier model, is based on point to point, with Dubai we can have inbound passengers as much as outbound passenger,” Chief Commercial Officer at flyadeal, Ahmed Albrahim told Arab News.

An official ceremony was held in King Abdulaziz International Airport, in the presence of Albrahim and the airport’s head Issam Nour.
