JEDDAH – Flyadeal, the Kingdom’s new low fare airline, will start operation from Sept. 23, Saudi National Day.
The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) on Wednesday issued flyadeal Air Operator Certificate (AOC).
An announcement to this effect was made during an event hosted by President of GACA Abdulhakeem Al-Tamimi. It was attended by both Chairman of flyadeal and Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines Corporation Eng. Saleh Bin Nasser Al-Jasser, and the flyadeal CEO, Con Kortiatis.
GACA President congratulated flyadeal on their achievement.
Flyadeal CEO Con Korfiatis responded by thanking Al-Tamimi and his team for their support. “Your focused support and regulatory guidance over the last few months has helped us reach the highest standards in quality and safety before we commence operations,” he remarked.
The Chairman of flyadeal and Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines Corporation separately thanked GACA for their professionalism and the steadfast support of their team of inspectors.
“I have to thank all of you at GACA for helping us deliver this airline on time so that we can commence our flying next week, on National Day,” he added.
Al-Jasser said the addition of flyadeal to the Saudi aviation market would help meet the growing demand and offer customers more choice.

Earlier, on Tuesday, Al-Qurayyat Airport received the first flyadeal test flight, a 186-seat Airbus A320.
