flyadeal will soon add Abha to its growing route network. The new destination will be the airline’s fifth destination from Jeddah and third from Riyadh, after having launched flights to Dammam, Qassim and Jazan in its first three months of commencing operations.

The new destination is made possible with the arrival of the fifth brand new A320 aircraft, Al-Kawkab (The Star). The new flights will be connected to both Jeddah and Riyadh from 1 February 2018, with two daily flights between the cities.

With the opening of the Abha route, we connect travellers point to point within the Kingdom with a new low fare service. In the months ahead, we look forward to even further expansion both domestically and internationally.”

The fares will start from SAR 98 between Abha and Jeddah and from SAR 108 between Abha and Riyadh, each way. The fly fare includes cabin baggage allowance of 10 kg and does not include hold baggage.
