Flyadeal, Saudi Arabia's low-cost carrier, celebrates a significant milestone, flying over 7 million customers across its network of 11 domestic destinations within 27 months of operation.
The company has witnessed a steady increase in customer base as it continues to provide low fares, supported by a fleet of new aircraft and a network of regular and growing domestic destinations that cover all four corners of the kingdom. The airline now offers 18 routes within the kingdom.
Chief executive officer of flyadeal, Con Korfiatis, stressed that such a significant achievement was only possible with the hard work and dedication of its employees.
Korfiatis added: “We at flyadeal are honoured to have won the confidence of 7 million customers across our domestic network since our launch on the kingdom’s 87th National Day, just over two years ago. We will continue to focus on earning the trust of even more customers by meeting our promise to provide them with everyday low fares, solid on-time performance and continuously expanding our network. We have also worked hard to simplify choices for our customers and demonstrate the potential of e-commerce within the kingdom – we now have over 97 per cent of sales online and more than two-thirds of these sales are on mobile devices. These are numbers which few airlines in the world can match.”
Flyadeal currently operates more than 98 flights daily with a domestic network spanning 11 main destinations (Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Qassim, Abha, Gizan, Tabuk, Madina, Hail, Taif, Yanbu) with a modern fleet that includes 14 Airbus A320CEO aircraft. The company is also increasing efforts to expand its network to include new domestic destinations, lay the groundwork for international expansion and prepare for the arrival of Airbus A320NEO aircraft in 2021 as part of the 50 A320NEO aircraft order agreement signed in June of last year. - TradeArabia News Service
