flyadeal, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s new low fare airline, has now received its third brand new A320 aircraft at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, arriving from Airbus’ factory in Hamburg, Germany.

The third aircraft, whose name was chosen from a voting process launched on social media, is named “Al-Sayf” (the Sword), following popular demand and an active engagement from flyadeal’s followers in Saudi Arabia. Al-Sayf flew over Jeddah, trailblazing its way on the axis of Prince Majid Road, where all spectators got the chance to watch and enjoy this moment as they took memorable snapshots that were uploaded and shared on social media using the hashtag #Al-Sayf.

Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal, said the arrival of Al-Sayf marks the fleet’s newest addition as it joins the ranks of Al-Nayyir and Suhail, thus increasing flyadeal’s seating capacity in Saudi Arabia. He said: “With our number of daily flights between Jeddah and Riyadh increasing to five per day from October 25, Al-Sayf will allow us to consider additional destinations in the Kingdom and allow more customers to fly for less.”

Al-Sayf is the third of the initial fleet of eight A320 aircrafts, expected to be delivered in the next few months. This confirms flyadeal’s vital role to support the aviation industry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
