Saudi Arabia air ticket prices (Flight tickets goes cheap next year in Saudi Arabia)

 

Travel to Egypt, travel to isle of wight

 

On Thursday the inaugural flight was made by Dammam-Nesma Airlines with Flyadeal looking to begin operation in the middle of 2017, suggesting that 2017 will be a year immersed in competition among airline companies.

This year alone Saudi Arabia will have 4 Airlines in operation: Saudia, Nesma, Flynas and Flyadeal

Hail Airport has been chosen by Nesma Airlines to be its home base. This signals the start of nationwide projects for hub airports. The essence behind this move is to enable more ease of travel among people residing in the country and citizens alike. The goal is to lower necessity of international airports. Ticket sales have begun through their authorized website and travel agencies.

“Demand in all types of travel has skyrocketed this year”, reports Economic expert Dr. Salim Bajajah. Throughtout the entire year flights for both short and long term holidays have risen. Sellouts have been occurring often as well leaving many travelers to have to travel by car, bus or other means restricting them to land.

“Population growth and the increase of citizens needs, especially those whose destinations are central cities, make establishing more airlines in the country a must,” said Bajajah.

According to Farouq Al-Khateeb, an economics professor at King Abdul Aziz University, thought that by making a more competitive market and giving out new licenses for start-up airlines will improve the aviation market and broaden the horizons of the industry.

“The success of new companies will attract other companies to join the sector… allowing other companies to enter the aviation market is a must and will cause a boost in the sector—subsequently it will create more job opportunities for the youth,” added Khateeb.

He put emphasis on the fact that cultivating a spirit of competition will play the main role in ticket prices being cheaper in the future, hoping that the airlines think about underwriting in where the populace can buy shares of the company and benefit in a more direct manner.

  5. Sounds like a great deal… However unless laws change I don’t think I can ever visit Saudi Arabia. They don’t really issue tourist visas except for Muslims on hajj, and as an unmarried woman I’d have a hard time getting around. It’s a shame, though, I’ve heard Saudis are such friendly people. Hopefully things change sometime in the future.

    1. Allison,
      Thank you for your comment! Women are more restricted indeed, very true. Women traveling alone are not allowed to enter the country unless they are met at the airport by a husband, sponsor or male relative.Thanks for reading.

      Happy Flying!

  8. I’d love to go to Saudi Arabia and this airline looks perfect. It’s difficult for me to get a visa but possible with a transit of less than 72 hours. I’m checking the site now to see how cheap a layover flight is!

    1. Thanks Only By Land for the response. Saudi Arabia is a lovely country to visit. Maybe the 72 hours layover would change your mind about the visa. Thanks.

      Happy Flying!
