Saudi Arabian LCC launches flights to Amman
Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport (AMM) today welcomed its first flight from Saudi Arabian low-cost carrier, flyadeal, which will operate daily direct services between Amman and Jeddah and Riyadh.
The Amman gateway says the new service underscores ongoing efforts to expand its airline and destination networks, while offering passengers diverse, affordable travel options.
The inaugural flight was greeted by representatives from Airport International Group, flyadeal and the airline’s general sales agent in Jordan – Altahadi Travel and Tours – and its ground handlers Menzies Aviation.
“We are pleased that flyadeal is joining our airline network and are eager to begin operating daily flights to two Saudi Arabian cities – Jeddah and Riyadh,” stated AIG CEO, Nicolas Claude.
“Presenting passengers with alternative routes and an elevated travel experience will help in attracting more tourists from Saudi Arabia, as well as enable us to continue leveraging the growing demand for new air travel markets.”
The airline’s chief customer and commercial officer, Ahmad Al-Barahim, said that he was pleased to add Amman to its growing network, which today reaches 24 domestic and international destinations.
Al-Brahim noted that the new low cost flights will in turn contribute to increasing travel and strengthening the bonds of cooperation between the two sister kingdoms, explaining that the company’s decision to operate its first international flights to Amman comes in response to the increasing demand from travellers for low cost flights.
