Flynas has announced a new record for the number of passengers flying the Saudi National Air Carrier after November saw a 67 percent increase over last year’s numbers.

Officials report the record was broken by nearly 550,000 passengers.

"Flynas has achieved a considerable expansion in 2016 by adding 15 new destinations to our flight network, and acquiring an authorization to operate out of Abha Airport as a regional airport in the Southern Region,” NAS Holding CEO Bander Al Mohanna said. “In addition, Flynas has signed a code-share agreement with the Pegasus Airline, and Etihad Airways, to reach more destinations in Turkey, and travel from Abu Dhabi to the world. All of these factors have contributed to more than half of a million passengers flying on Flynas during November of this year, 2016 (an increase of 67 percent), in comparison to November of last year."

The low cost Saudi airline credits its extended destination list for the new record numbers. Several new flights were added to Flynas’ schedule in 2016, better meeting the needs of international travelers.

"This significant growth in the number of passengers is clear proof of the successful expansion implemented by Flynas in its flight network,” Al Mohanna said. “This means the addition of new flights to those destinations that are witnessing an increase in popularity and demand. Guided by our ambitions, we are working to reach our goals and provide our passengers with an increase in special offers and services in our fast-growing network of destinations."
