Stefan Magiera, Flynas Chief Commercial Officer, noted that “Most of Flynas’ aircraft are the brand new Airbus A320neo which have the most efficient and environmentally friendly engines and the largest seat pitch of all low-cost carriers between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and India; this expansion is part of our long-term plan to become the No 1 airline between the Kingdom and India and to serve more direct routes. More growth is expected, with more destinations in India and more routes. Flynas will also offer connectivity within the Kingdom, where our passengers can continue their flights on our planes to Jeddah or Medina.
