flydubai operations to Gizan will commence on 10 July with daily flights. Jouf will follow on 11 July with four flights a week.

Expressing gratitude to Saudi authorities for their cooperation and support, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said: "We are honoured to have the opportunity to further expand our network in Saudi Arabia.

Stretching along the southern Red Sea coast, the Gizan province includes the Farasan Islands, Saudi Arabia's first natural reserve, home to the rare Arabian Gazelle and birds migrating from Europe in winter.

Located in the north of Saudi Arabia, Jouf, which is home to 500,000 people features historical Islamic monuments, and hosts one of the largest land ports in the Middle East.

"With direct flights to Dubai, passengers can enjoy flydubai's comfortable onboard services including its Business Class and award-winning In-Flight Entertainment.
