Budget carrier Nasair is planning to introduce a number of new flights to Dubai.
From 2011, the airline wants to eventually increase the number of flights to 18, with the addition of a further link to Dammam.
“We have seen a marked increase in demand from passengers to travel between Dubai and Saudi Arabia, so opening up this route was a logical step in our strategic expansion plans,” Sulaiman Al Hamdan, chief executive officer of National Air Services (NAS Holding).
He added that passenger figures have increased on flights to Dubai by up to 14 per cent over the past year as more travellers opt to visit the UAE.
Nasair begin flights in February 2007 and now serves offers around 450 flights per week to more than 30 destinations.
