In line with the lifting of the international travel ban for Saudi citizens, flynas, the Saudi national air carrier and leading low-cost airline in the Middle East, has welcomed a new Airbus A320neo aircraft. With the latest addition to its fleet, flynas would have received 16 aircrafts out of its SAR 32-billion-deal with Airbus in 2017 to purchase 120 A320neo aircraft.
