Flydubai ramps up Saudi services


Flydubai is ramping up services to Saudi Arabia with the launch of flights to the tourism hotspot Al Ula.

It will also resume operations to the port city of Yanbu.

Flights to Yanbu International Airport (YNB), also known as Abdul Mohsin bin Abdulaziz International Airport, will start on February 24 with a three times weekly service.

Meanwhile, flights to Al Ula's Prince Abdul Majeed bin Abdulaziz Airport (ULH) will start on March 2, and will operate twice a week from DXB's Terminal 2.

The latest additions will take flydubai's network in the Kingdom to six points including Dammam, Jeddah, Madinah and Riyadh.

Al Ula is an unseen wonder of the world and home to Saudi Arabia's first UNESCO World Heritage site Hegra.

The site opened to global travellers for the first time in 2020.
