Bahrain International Airport (BIA) has strengthened the connectivity relations between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain with the new Flynas flights connecting both countries.

The introduction of new Flynas connections will further strengthen regional connectivity and promote tourism as well as business opportunities between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The introduction of new routes comes in line with the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia promoting the two countries as a joint regional and global destination, attracting more tourism investments as well as improving and enriching the experience of tourists in the region.

“Saudi Arabia has always been a key market for us, with airline connectivity between the two countries over seven decades attracting passenger traffic of around 1.5 million annually. The new connections with Flynas reaffirm our commitment to strengthening the bond between the two nations, with enhanced connectivity that will not only benefit travelers but also foster cultural exchange, business collaborations, and tourism ties.”

Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) is the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport, the gateway that connects the Kingdom with the world. Tasked with developing the airport’s infrastructure, facilities, and commercial offerings, BAC has transformed BIA into the most modern boutique airport in the Gulf region.

The new route will be operated with a frequency of seven flights per week between King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh and Bahrain International Airport.

With direct weekly flights, travelers will have increased flexibility to plan their journeys and enjoy the ease of access between Bahrain and major cities in KSA. The inaugural Flynas A320 flight from Riyadh to Bahrain started operations on 15th November, according to the statement.
