Emirates, flynas ink deal to boost travel via Dubai

RIYADH, May 7, 2024


Emirates has signed an expanded two-way interline partnership with Saudi carrier flynas in a move aimed at opening up connections and more travel choices for flynas customers via Dubai.
Emirates’ current interline with flynas provides its customers with enhanced connectivity via its four gateways: Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah, and Dammam, to over 15 domestic points in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 
It also includes the convenience of single ticket itineraries with onwards booking and baggage transfers.
With the expansion of the interline to a bilateral arrangement, flynas customers can connect across any of Emirates’ gateways in the Kingdom to a select roster of onward destinations on the airline’s network in the Far East, West Asia & Indian Ocean and Europe, via Dubai, said senior officials at the signing ceremony held on the sidelines of the Arabian Travel Market (ATM), in Dubai.
The agreement was signed by Emirates’ Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer Adnan Kazim and flynas Group CEO & Managing Director Bander Almohanna in the presence of senior officials including Emirates Airline & Group Chairman and Chief Executive Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum and flynas Chairman Ayed Al Jeaid.
On the strategic tieup, Almohanna said: "We are quite pleased to offer more choices to our customers through Emirates' wide network."
"Once the expanded interline partnership is activated, customers will be able to book their travel on the flynas website, through online travel agencies as well as with local travel agents," he noted.
Kazim pointed out that the existing flynas links provided its customers with an array of possibilities to travel smoothly across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in particular to business hubs and emerging leisure and cultural destinations. 
"Connecting our networks solidifies our commitment to offering travellers in Saudi Arabia access to even more destinations and helping them benefit from unique travel options," he stated. 
"The expansion of our interline agreement demonstrates our commitment to Saudi Arabia, and this is only the beginning. We look forward to exploring more opportunities to widen the scope of our partnership in the future," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
