RIYADH: Saudi Airlines' flyadeal — the newest low-cost airline in the Kingdom — received the first of 30 new Airbus (A320neo) aircraft in a ceremony at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, SPA reported.

A320neo is one of the latest models with high efficiency in operating economies, designed to operate on short and medium-range destinations, and is characterized by a 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption.

Flyadeal will get 30 of these aircrafts by 2025, according to a presentation at the ceremony.

Con Korfiatis, CEO of flyadeal, said the airline was “achieving the goal of reaching this number ahead of schedule”.

Korfiatis also emphasized the company's expansion of its fleet and network of domestic flights, which includes 14 destinations, referring to flyadeal's ability to increase daily flights to 88, through a modern fleet consisting of 15 Airbus (A320) aircraft, in addition to operating the first international flights directly from Riyadh to Dubai last July.

The company has transported more than 11 million passengers since it started flights in 2017.
