Saudia Arabia fleet: flyadeal, flynas, rapid LCC growth
The Saudi Arabian airline market is poised for rapid growth over the next few years as the kingdom relies on aviation and tourism to diversify its economy. LCCs are particularly well positioned as low fares stimulate demand among a youthful population that is eager to travel more.
Saudia Arabia's two LCCs, the privately owned flynas and Saudia subsidiary flyadeal, are planning rapid expansion. Flynas has placed orders for 80 A320neos, enabling the airline to triple its fleet over the next eight years, while flyadeal plans soon to place an order for 30 new generation narrowbody aircraft.
The passenger aircraft fleet in Saudi Arabia has grown by 15% over the past year, driven by rapid expansion at Saudia and flyadeal. The Saudia Group now accounts for approximately 80% of the fleet and 75% of domestic fleet capacity. The group's new two-brand strategy should enable it to maintain strong market share as competition intensifies and the market doubles in size over the next few years.

flyadeal unveils first version of mobile app
flyadeal has unveiled the first look of its mobile application less than six months after it started flying. With the release comes a first for any local airline — flyadeal is inviting its customers to help with improving the application.
“We’re really excited about this development. This first release is very much a trial version of the app and is focused on being customer-friendly,” said Con Korfiatis, flyadeal CEO. “We’re looking to hear from our customers about what they like and don’t like. We want to improve the user experience and focus on the things that matter.”He added: “Right now, the app lets you do everything you can on the website — make a booking, manage existing bookings and check in online. You can do this when you want and where you want so long as you have your mobile with you. But we want to go further. Make things easier for our customers. See if there are things we have not thought about. That’s why we will give free round-trip vouchers to the suggestions we like best.”
This first version of flyadeal’s mobile application, operating both on iOS and Android platforms, aims to enhance the user experience by providing an easy to follow process at the touch of a finger. Future updates will be based on the best user suggestions to include further enhanced capabilities, functionalities and payment methods.

Saudia's Flyadeal Aims To Cut 50-Aircraft Deal by Midyear
Saudi Arabia appears ready to fully commit to the low-fare air transport market as Saudia subsidiary Flyadeal prepares to order 50 narrowbody aircraft to support a major expansion in and around the kingdom.
“We are in the evaluation phase and hope to make a decision by the middle of the year,” Flyadeal CEO Con Korfiatis told AIN at the recent Aviation Festival in Singapore, referring to proposals from Boeing and Airbus to supply 737 Max jets or A320neos, respectively. “It is a genuine competition from the manufacturers, and we haven’t launched our airline with a new-generation aircraft as we are saving that for our long-term fleet decision.”
Now flying five Airbus A320s leased from Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), Flyadeal launched commercial services in September with a route between Riyadh and Jeddah. It expects to receive three more A320s this this year.
Flyadeal currently flies to six domestic destinations in Saudi Arabia, and plans call for the airline to serve its first international destination by the second half of this year, said Korfiatis.
“We will start with destinations that are about four hours away, which is plenty,” he noted, adding that fleet planners continue to study several potential markets.
Formed as part of a Saudia Group transformation strategy aimed at elevating the company into a world-class organization by 2020, Flyadeal positions itself as a pure low-cost airline, as opposed to what Korfiatis characterized as hybrid LCCs in the Middle East such as FlyDubai.
The Australian, who has served in executive roles at Jetstar and Indonesia’s Citilink, cited consistent “above average” load factors at Flyadeal as evidence of the region’s appetite for low-cost flying.

Currently the airline has no other routes on sale.
