Saudi Arabia’s Flynas will operate special flights between Riyadh and Dubai.

The passenger services will operate from September 17 to September 28, 2020 and will be available to travellers in certain categories, the low-cost carrier said on social media.

The announcement comes after the kingdom confirmed it will partially lift its international flight ban on September 15, allowing travellers in certain categories to enter or leave the country.

All the coronavirus-linked restrictions will be completely lifted only after January 2021, state news agency SPA said on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia closed its borders to international visitors in March to stem the spread of coronavirus.

The state news agency said those that are excepted from the travel restrictions effective September 15 include diplomats, patients who require treatment overseas, businessmen and individuals who have permanent jobs outside the state, as well as those with humanitarian cases, among others.
