NEOM, Saudi Arabia’s sustainable regional development, and Saudia, the country’s national carrier, have sealed a strategic partnership to launch a weekly service to international destinations from NEOM Bay Airport, marking  the start of commercial services at the airport.

Saudia will operate direct flights to select regional and international destinations. Aircraft travelling to the selected destinations will feature a joint NEOM-Saudia livery.

Weekly flights to Dubai International Airport will commence by the end of June, with plans to expand to London next.

Ibrahim Al-Omar, director general of Saudia, said: “This partnership is in line with SAUDIA’s ambition to support Saudi Vision 2030 by increasing passenger traffic domestically and regionally, as well as expanding our connections to global cities. As NEOM continues to progress, demand for travel to there is only increasing, making it a natural addition to our list of destinations.”

Nadhmi Al-Nasr, CEO of NEOM, said: “NEOM Bay Airport is a key enabler of NEOM’s development, facilitating efficient access to NEOM for residents and business partners, and drastically improving the ease with which NEOM can connect with people from all over the world. This is an exciting step in our journey to provide the best possible air connectivity to NEOM and a signal of our rapid growth.”

Increasing direct connectivity is an important step in promoting the further development of the ambitious giga-project, which is being completed by an impressive team of local, regional and international experts.

The development currently has over 1,500 full-time employees representing over 65 nationalities, and numerous business partners from all over the world. It also sits at the crossroads of three continents, with 40 per cent of the world accessible within a four-hour flight.

NEOM’s mobility strategy is also targetting the further development of air travel to the destination in the coming years.
