Saudi Nasair announces 14 weekly flights to Pakistan


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Nasair, the low fare airline based in Saudi Arabia, today announced it will launch new flights to Karachi, on June 18.

The airline will operate daily scheduled flights from both Riyadh and Jeddah airports. These flights will go on sale for an introductory price of SAR 499 inclusive of taxes.

The addition of Karachi to the nasair route network will bring the number of nasair’s international destinations to 19 cities. The flights will accommodate the growth in demand from Pakistani expats living and working in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, with the Hajj season rapidly approaching for the year 2011 this critical route expansion will help serve the nearly 200,000 pilgrims who fly to Saudi Arabia from Pakistan every year.

The routes will be flown by nasair’s modern, comfortable Airbus A320 aircraft. Simon Stewart, CEO says, “We are proud of our commitment to being the smart choice for passengers throughout the MENA region and beyond. By adding this new destination, we intend to efficiently serve the Pakistani businessmen, executives, families and workers living in Saudi Arabia.

We also hope to offer Saudi business people more travel options for reaching expanding markets in Pakistan.” To better service travelers between the two countries, nasair has introduced seven direct flights between Jeddah and Karachi each week and seven direct flights between Riyadh and Karachi per week. Turki Abdullah Al Jawini, Director of Sales comments, “The nasair team is proud to represent the ‘Smart Airline’, catering to the needs of the domestic, international, business and religious tourist alike.

We recognize that our passengers want to plan their trips in advance to take advantage of our ‘book early and pay less’ model.” Mr. Al Jawini also underscores that alongside its advancing route map, nasair will be offering its customers a redesigned website with more advanced features and capabilities and remains committed to its strong promotions and revamped social media.
