flyadeal, Saudi Arabia’s Everyday Low Fares airline, completed one year of operations on 23rd September which also coincides with the country’s National Day. In a period of one year, the airline has reached several milestones, providing a broad range of air service options, contributing to the expansion of the air transport industry – one of the pillars of the 2030 vision.
Since the very start of flyadeal, customers have shared their delight with low fares and the new flight services available – and they have responded. What started as a single flight between Jeddah and Riyadh last national day has now become 56 daily flyadeal flights between eight cities in Saudi Arabia. In less than one year since the start of operations, flyadeal has now flown over 1.5m passengers.
Established as part of Saudia’s Transformation 2020 program, flyadeal was a newcomer to the domestic air travel market, bringing something different, focused on innovation and personality. Its 24 daily flights between Jeddah and Riyadh – with prices starting from SAR 108 – is a reflection of the flyadeal’s mission to provide low fares with high value – for everyone. Right from the beginning, the airline came to the market with a bold and colourful position, providing hospitality with a smile.
At the heart of flyadeal’s rapid growth, it has been a belief that technology should be at the heart of their connection to their Customers. Most of flyadeal’s tickets are sold online through its website or app via credit cards. Its app, which was released only a few months ago, has already been downloaded 250,000 times. Its social media platforms serve an audience of about 350,000 fans and followers. Every month, its social care team processes over 50,000 messages from customers.
flyadeal also recently became the first airline in the Kingdom to open female cabin crew positions to Saudis. In addition, the airline has achieved platinum level in Saudization and the number of Saudi employees has grown by almost 250% over the last year.
On the country’s 88th National Day, the airline finds itself poised to work harder to win the Nation’s affection. flyadeal is the fastest-growing airline in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and in just one year of flying has broadened brand awareness, expanded rapidly and grown its customer base.
“We look forward to welcoming even more new customers onboard, offering convenient and affordable flight options.” Said the flyadeal team
- YOU CAN PAY USING YOUR mada Debit Card:
With all the contributions that flyadeal was able to achieve in such a short amount of time, it is only natural that the company would always be on the look out to provide its customers with ease and convenience of making online payments.
“As e-commerce activity grows and travelers purchase more services online, we want to ensure that we offer travelers more convenient ways to book, pay and fly with us.” Said the flyadeal team
With that being said flyadeal is now offering its customers payments using mada debit cards, just in line with their one year anniversary and the 88th National day for KSA!! mada is a debit card issued and co-branded with Visa and Mastercard that allows a cardholder to access funds in their bank accounts. It works like an ATM card, but with newer standards of security and added-value features.
“Customers no longer need to pull out a credit card, or head to the bank or ATM to make payments.” Said the flyadeal team “Instead you can now make payments whenever you want, wherever you want, up to 3 hours before the flight.”
By accepting mada debit cards, flyadeal remains true to its goal of bringing accessible and affordable air travel to everyone in the Kingdom leaving them at the acceptance of 22 million cards in circulation, which is the highest in the Kingdom.
