“We already operate flights from Riyadh and Jeddah to Khartoum and now we are very pleased to add the Madinah/Khartoum route to our services between Saudi Arabia and Sudan,” said Raja Azmi, CEO of flynas. “Coming as part of our promise to make flying more convenient, comfortable and cost-effective, this latest destination will be of great advantage to business and domestic passengers as well benefitting pilgrims visiting the holy city.”
