Flydubai will launch scheduled flights to AlUla in Saudi Arabia with effect from 24 February, 2022, becoming the first UAE carrier to operate this route from Dubai.
The carrier will also resume its operations to Yanbu on 2 March 2022, growing its network in the Kingdom to six destinations, including Dammam, Jeddah, Madinah and Riyadh.
Flights to Yanbu will operate three times a week, while flights to Prince Abdul Majeed bin Abdulaziz Airport, AlUla will operate twice a week. Both flights will operate on a Boeing 737 aircraft.
AlUla is an unseen wonder of the world and home to Saudi Arabia's first UNESCO World Heritage site, Hegra. This site opened to global travellers for the first time in 2020 and visitors can now explore and view the remains of a remarkable and rich historical and archaeological site.
AlUla offers visitors a journey through a living museum of the preserved Nabataean tombs of Hegra, sandstone outcrops, historic dwellings and monuments, both natural and man-made, that hold 200,000 years of largely unexplored human history.
Flydubai’s passenger experience has been redesigned to enable travel in a safe environment that minimises crew and passenger contact and offers passengers confidence to travel at every step of their journey.
Customers who book a flight through flydubai.com will receive complimentary global cover for COVID-19 related costs to offer greater peace of mind when travelling.
