Riyadh – Mubasher: Flynas has signed a purchase order for 10 A321 XLRs aeroplanes at the 2019 Dubai Airshow, according to a statement.
The agreement was signed by Bandar Almohanna, flynas CEO, and Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer.
“Flynas is pleased to announce a firm order of 10 x A321XLR, which will increase the total number of its firm order of A320 family aircraft type to 90 aircraft at list price worth $10 billion,” said the CEO of Saudi Arabia’s first low-cost airline.
Almohanna added that these 10 XLRs will expand the reach of flynas network to much farther destinations with support of significantly longer flying range compared to the existing A320neo order, and therefore would help to add further support to the Vision 2030 of Saudi Arabia in increasing the number of Religious pilgrims to 4 times the current level.
Flynas has been the first airline to launch A320neo in Saudi Arabia, with already 4 aircraft delivered in last 12 months, he noted.
In 2018, Flynas transported more than 6.6 million passengers on 60,000 domestic and international flights. The airline is currently operating over 1,200 flights weekly to 17 domestic destinations and 53 international destinations.
