Abu Dhabi Airports recently welcomed flynas’ inaugural flight from Riyadh.

The airline commenced its new service with a direct flight, five times per week. Eng Ahmad Al Haddabi, chief operations officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, along with senior executives from Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), welcomed Bander Al Mohanna, CEO of NAS Holding, and key flynas officials.

flynas will operate the new route using an Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity of 164 guests in a two-class configuration – 156 in economy and eight in business class.

Flights will operate every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, departing Riyadh at 9:35am, arriving into Abu Dhabi International Airport at 12:35pm. The return flight takes off from the UAE capital at 2:45pm to land at King Khalid International Airport at 3:45pm local time.

Bander Al Mohanna, CEO of NAS Holding, said: “Adding Abu Dhabi to our GCC route network is an important strategic step for flynas for multiple reasons, including our codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways as well as the long-standing friendship and the strong bilateral business and economic ties shared by the two nations. Moreover, Abu Dhabi’s growing prominence as both a leading family-friendly tourism destination and a strategic business hub.”

In first nine months of this year, Saudi guests staying in the emirate’s 163 hotels and hotel apartments have increased by 29% from the same period in 2014 to 112,294. Their average length of stay has also increased to 2.28 nights – up by seven percent.
