flydubai, Dubai’s innovative low-cost airline, has added another destination in Saudi Arabia to its network, with two flights a week to Ha’il.
Flights to Ha’il, an oasis city in Nejd in the north west of the country, will commence on 13 February 2013. The city contributes to a large percentage of the Kingdom's wheat, date and fruit production.
flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “As we remain committed to better serve the Saudi market, we are grateful to the authorities for their continuous support of flydubai. The start of this service reaffirms our commitment to serve regional airports with direct flights to Dubai. We look forward to serving passengers from Ha’il, which is becoming increasing important to the Kingdom’s economy.”
flydubai first launched services to Saudi Arabia in November 2010, and now serves Riyadh, Jeddah, Abha Yanbu, Dammam, Gassim, Tabuk and Taif and in addition to Ha’il.
flydubai’s network now spans more than 50 destinations in 32 countries across the Middle East, Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Asia and Central & Eastern Europe.
