Nesma Airlines is set to launch domestic flights in Saudi Arabia in November, the carrier’s managing director has said.
Ashraf Lamloum told Al Arabiya that the Ha’il-based airline’s business model would be built around direct flights to the northern city, as well as feeder services.
Nesma currently operates flights between Egypt and Saudi Arabia with three Airbus A320 aircraft. Its domestic services will connect Ha’il with 12 other Saudi airports, using two ATR 72-600 turboprops.
Other new airlines set to launch in the kingdom soon are VIP charter outfit Sky Prime, and Saudia-owned budget carrier Flyadeal. More info
