Fly direct to Marseille, Almaty, Algiers and Casablanca from Jeddah
Flynas will start operating 10 new weekly flights starting this November…
The summer holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan your next getaway. And good news: Saudi Arabia’s low-cost airline flynas is set to launch four new and direct destinations to cities in Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia.
As of November, the new flight services will be two weekly flights to Marseille in southern France, two weekly flights to Almaty in the Central Asian country of Kazakhstan, three weekly flights to Algiers, and three weekly flights to Casablanca in Morocco.
The proposed direct flights will operate from King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah to the new four destinations.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, the direct flights to these new destinations are part of an agreement that flynas signed with the Air Connectivity Program “to facilitate the arrival of visitors, including tourists, pilgrims and Umrah performers to the Kingdom”.
Bander Almohanna, the CEO and managing director of flynas, said that the signing of the agreement is in line with the carrier’s growth strategy to enable the airline to reach 165 domestic and international destinations.
The Air Connectivity Program – a Ministry of Tourism initiative – was launched earlier this year to support airlines’ goals to establish new international routes and increase the number of direct international destinations to 250 by 2030.
Other carriers are signing onto the program as well. In June, Europe’s low-cost airline Wizz Air announced that it would launch new routes connecting Dammam to Rome and Vienna next month.
