flynas, the Saudi national air carrier and leading low-cost airline in the Middle East, maintained its leadership in the aviation sector, dodging the challenges of the new normal imposed by the novel coronavirus pandemic, as it retained its title as the Leading Low-Cost Airline in the Middle East by the prestigious World Travel Awards for the sixth consecutive year.
At a time when the global travel industry is challenged by the repercussions of COVID-19, this accolade from the world’s most acclaimed travel and tourism industry awards comes as an international recognition of distinction for flynas’ strategy which has ensured its sustained excellence through its continuous innovation in the aviation sector and its delivery of the best offers at a regional level.
Commenting on the new achievement, flynas CEO Mr. Bander Almohanna said: “We are proud of this award that flynas has achieved for the sixth year in a row. Gaining this recognition at this particular time bears additional significance and clearly emphasizes that all the plans that we have implemented during the past period, under the guidance and support of our astute leadership, have been effective at the operational and business development levels." He added that flynas not only focused on sustaining its operations, but also continued to work on its expansion plans which were recommenced immediately with the gradual resumption of flights.
“Focused on its goal to add new destinations and services that meet the aspirations of travelers, flynas continued to add A320neo airliners to its fleet, and as of October 2020 has received nine aircraft out if its landmark $8.6 billion-deal with Airbus to purchase 120 A320neo aircraft,” he said.
Almohanna concluded that this accolade reflects flynas’ strategy that aims to retain its leading position as passengers’ most trusted airliner, and acknowledges its exceptional, dedicated team that always strives to deliver the best service to its traveling guests.
