Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- In order to further increase the number of foreign tourists visiting Uzbekistan due to the quality of transport services, at the beginning of this year, the Ministry of Transport of Uzbekistan held negotiations with the leadership of Flynas of Saudi Arabia. Agreements were reached on the opening of Riyadh-Tashkent-Riyadh flights.
Flynas (formerly Nas Air) was founded in 2007. Flynas has been named the Middle East’s Leading Low-Cost Airline for five consecutive years by the World Travel Awards and three consecutive years by Skytrax. This company is one of the largest budget airlines. It serves 17 domestic and 53 international routes and has a fleet of 27 aircraft.
On 5 August (at 12.30 Tashkent time, flight XY-359), Flynas operated its first flight from Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, to Tashkent.
The A320NEO aircraft landed at the Islam Karimov International Airport in the city of Tashkent. There were 18 passengers from Riyadh, including two Flynas Management members, Mr Fahad Almulhem (flynas VP KSA Sales) and Mr Mohammed Amin (Flynas Corporate & Govt. Sales Manager).
Taking into account the regularity of Flynas flights, the flow of tourists will be increased, and representatives of large Uzbek travel companies and agencies will be sent to Saudi Arabia.
In addition, presentations of the tourism potential of Uzbekistan will take place.
This flight will further strengthen the friendly relations between the two countries and increase the number of tourists visiting our country from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
