Flydubai is first UAE airline to offer flights to Saudi Arabia’s futuristic city

Want to take a sneak peek into a Saudi’s futuristic city? Well you can now head on a trip to Neom- Saudi’s all new futuristic neighbourhood. The smart city is powered entirely by clean energy and is due to open in 2025. Dubai-aites can now head over to take a look at this $500 billion smart project. How cool is that!

Flydubai becomes the first UAE airline to connect Dubai to the futuristic smart city in north-western Saudi Arabia. The airline will operate flights to Neom Bay Airport twice a week from March 16, on Thursdays and Sundays. The flights will depart from terminal 3 in DXB, with a flying time of under three hours.

Apart from Flydubai, Saudi’s national airline is the only other airline which operates between Dubai and Neom.  Saudia Airlines launched the first commercial flights from Neom Bay Airport to Dubai in June 2022. The weekly round-trip flight is operated via aircraft sporting special Neom-Saudia livery, in an effort to showcase the megacity to the world.

Due to open in 2025, Neom is a town in Saudi Arabia’s Tabuk region that lies at the confluence of three continents. Neom Bay Airport, which was built to serve the multibillion-dollar gigaproject, is roughly four hours’ flight time away from 40% of the world’s destinations.


As of now, The Line, the mountain resort Trojena, the research and innovation district Oxagon, and Sindalah, a posh yachting and golfing destination, are the four major projects within Neom that have been officially announced.

The location wants to draw tourists from all over the world. Neom Bay Airport, which was built to serve the multibillion-dollar gigaproject, is roughly four hours’ flight time away from 40% of the world’s destinations.

Additionally, Flydubai is extending its network to include additional locations in Saudi Arabia.

On March 18, the airline will begin offering three weekly flights to Najran in the southwest of Saudi Arabia. On March 21, Flydubai will begin offering twice-weekly flights to Al Qaisumah in the eastern province of the country.

The low-cost carrier will also begin four weekly flights in April to Jizan, a port city on the Red Sea coast in the country’s southwest. It is renowned for its tropical produce and lush landscapes.
