RIYADH (Agencies): Saudi low-cost carrier flynas has received its 50th jetliner out of an order of more than 100 aircraft from Airbus, as it continues to pursue its growth and expansion plans.

The Riyadh-based airline signed a deal in 2017 valued at over SR32 billion ($8.53 billion) with the European aerospace company for 120 A320neo planes, marking the second-largest aircraft purchase in the Middle East at that time.

The Saudi national air carrier received its first A320neo aircraft in November 2018.

This aligns with flynas’s strategy to expand its fleet, as well as its goal of reaching 165 domestic and international destinations, in line with the objectives outlined in the Saudi Vision 2030, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The A320neo airplane is the third of its kind received by flynas since the beginning of 2024, and it is due to receive other batches of aircraft during the year, thereby reinforcing the carrier’s commitment to sustainability and environmental protection.

Additionally, the A320neo is the most advanced, environmentally friendly, and fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft on a global level, SPA added.
