Adding more value to flynas’ low-cost fares, all passengers can now enjoy free check-in baggage (20 kg) and pre-order meals online while making their booking. Furthermore, flynas has introduced a Business Class Cabin on its young fleet of 27 aircraft.
Building on the strong customer appeal and high trust amongst passengers inside and outside Saudi Arabia, flynas unveiled its new modern identity towards the end of last year as a key part of the airline’s growth strategy targeting 20 million passengers a year by 2020.
