Saudi Arabian low-cost carrier (LCC) flynas has signed a multilateral interline traffic agreement with Egypt’s national carrier Egyptair.

The agreement aims to offer passengers of both airlines a wider range of air travel options, where flynas’ passengers will be able to visit several new destinations across Europe and Africa through Egyptair-operated flights via Cairo International Airport.

Flynas’ passengers can now visit Asmara, Athens, Paris, Entebbe, Rome, Larnaca, Casablanca, Tunis, N’djamena, and Algeria. Likewise, Egyptair’s passengers will be able to reach many domestic destinations operated by flynas within Saudi Arabia.

The LCC said the partnership provides a “unique advantage that supports flynas’ development and expansion strategy in terms of enhancing its regional and international presence”.

This partnership is the latest in a series of recent strategic partnerships for flynas, including codeshare agreements with Pegasus Airlines and Etihad Airways.

At the Paris Airshow earlier this month, the airline signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Airbus to purchase 20 of the latest A321XLR and A321LR aircraft to be received by 2023.

Flynas has a fleet of 30 Airbus A320 aircraft, operating over 1,100 flights weekly to 17 domestic destinations and 53 international destinations.
