The launch of the Riyadh to Cairo route joins the airline’s already operating international flights from Riyadh: services to Dubai and Kuwait launched last year. In total, flyadeal now flies to 16 destinations across its domestic and international network.

But those looking to add more travel to their 2022 agendas can expect more flight routes to launch soon. According to Ahmed Al-Brahim, the airline’s chief commercial and customer officer, the new flight route reflects the company’s desire to support the objectives of the Saudi Vision 2030 development plan, and the strategy of the Kingdom’s General Authority of Civil Aviation, by connecting the Kingdom with the world.
The company is doing this, he added, by providing budget flights that offer a variety of travel options at competitive prices, in an effort to keep pace with the growing air-transport market in the country and the wider region.
