After a five-year break, the Saudi low-cost airline Flynas will launch a new direct flight between Prague and Riyadh.
The carrier did not specify when exactly the new airline will start operating, but Prague has already appeared in the list of destinations on its official website. The cost of tickets is also still unknown.
The route will be served by an Airbus A320neo.
Until 2016, Czech Airlines flew between the two capitals, however, the flight was later canceled due to low demand.
Saudi Arabian Airlines was the only airline in the country until 2006 when budget carriers Nas Air and Sama Airlines got their licenses from the government. Nas Air was founded in 2007. Operations started in February that year. In late 2007, Nas Air firmed up an order for the acquisition of 20 aircraft of the Airbus A320 family.
The company changed its name from Nasair to Flynas in November 2013. In January 2017, Flynas signed an agreement to order 80 Airbus A320neo family with deliveries schedule from 2018 to 2026. In November 2018, Flynas took delivery of the first Airbus A320neo family aircraft.
