The civil aviation strategic plan aims to reach more than 330 million passengers annually and link Saudi Arabia with more than 250 destinations in the world by 2030.

CEO of flynas Bander Almohanna said in an exclusive interview with media that flynas is operating at full capacity, back to the pre-pandemic levels, pursuing its expansion plans, opening new destinations on both domestic and international levels, and scaling up its fleet with new aircraft. Almohanna praised Saudi government support, in which he said, The company is operating currently at full capacity, and we have returned, thank God, to levels before the crisis, and we even exceeded them.

He said that the Kingdom civil aviation strategy is playing an important role in supporting and strengthening the position of Saudi national air carriers at the international level. Almohanna explained that the strategic goal of flynas is to connect the world to the Kingdom to contribute to realizing the civil aviation strategic plan and achieving Saudi Vision 2030.

Further he added, We have opened new destinations to enhance linking the Kingdom with international destinations, such as Ukraine, Albania, Austria, Russia, the Czech Republic, and Greece. We have also linked the city of AlUla with international airports, starting with Dubai, and we will keep expanding.

The civil aviation strategic plan aims to reach more than 330 million passengers annually and link Saudi Arabia with more than 250 destinations in the world by 2030. The Kingdom also aims to attract 100 million tourists annually. Almohanna said, We have complete confidence in the Saudi economy and in the strong and promising strategy of the government to support tourism and make Saudi Arabia a global logistics center. During the COVID-19 crisis, we received 10 new Airbus aircraft, which confirms our commitment, faith and trust in the Saudi economy, the Kingdom vision, and the sector strategy in Saudi Arabia.

Almohanna stressed the importance of collaboration among all national carriers to achieve the vision of the Saudi leadership, as stated by the civil aviation strategy. They should not crowd each other on the same destinations but rather search for new destinations to connect them with Saudi Arabia to accelerate achieving the goal of 250 destinations. Then he also stated that, “Actually, what the Saudi government did to address the pandemic was honorable. It has taken tough but firm measures, and we are now reaping the fruits of the positive results of those measures. The economy has returned to growth, and the aviation sector is back to pre-pandemic levels.

Flynas Airlines connects more than 70 domestic and international destinations through its fleet of more than 34 aircraft, and the Saudi national carrier has transported more than 55 million passengers since its establishment in 2007. Almohanna valued government support that national air carriers received during the COVID-19 pandemic, in line with the International Air Transport Association directive urging countries to bail out airlines because, without government support, airlines cannot survive.

We contacted the government and obtained rapid support in line with IATA advice, and a special fund was established to support the aviation sector by a royal decree, he said.
