flynas receives two next-gen A320neo

flynas has received two Airbus aircraft of the next-generation A320neo.
This represents the third batch of 19 new aircraft of the same model to be delivered in 2023, and comes just a few days after the LCC signed an agreement with Airbus, during Paris Airshow, to purchase another 30 new A320neo aircraft, as part of plans to upscale its fleet.
Arriving from Toulouse, France, the two new A320neo landed at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, increasing aircraft received during 2023 to seven (five of them are A320neo and two A330), and upscaling flynas fleet to 51 aircraft, up 96% in about two years, compared to its size of 26 aircraft in the first quarter of 2021.
Bander Almohanna, CEO and Managing Director of flynas, said: “Taking delivery of the second A320neo batch in less than a month, and within days of signing the new 30-aircraft agreement, is an affirmation of our relentless efforts to support our exceptional growth with a modern, comfortable, and fuel-efficient operational capability, equipped with cutting-edge technologies, in line with our growth and expansion strategy under the slogan ‘We Connect The World to the Kingdom'”.
“Upscaling our fleet with more of the next-generation A320neo aircraft demonstrates our commitment to keeping our leading position regionally and globally after flynas has been announced by the International Skytrax Organization as the 4th Best Low-Cost Airline in the world and the Best LCC in the Middle East for 2023, for the sixth time in a row, consolidating our ability to participate in achieving objectives of the National Civil Aviation Strategy to reach 330 million passengers and 100 million tourists, and increase the number of international destinations linked to the Kingdom to more than 250 destinations by 2030,” he added.
The Board of Directors of flynas has agreed to increase the new aircraft orders to 250 aircraft, making flynas the largest low-cost carrier in the Middle East and North Africa region.
