Flynas is cancelling its Jeddah to Manchester service just three months after launching the route.

The low-cost Saudi carrier has since early May operated a thrice-weekly A330 service between the two cities (see news, March 11).

But the airline is pulling the route on August 2 — three months to the day after launch.

Instead, Flynas will continue to serve Manchester through a codeshare with Etihad Airways via Abu Dhabi, reports airlineroute.net.

Privately-owned Flynas is an Islamic airline, so no alcohol is available on board.

Christian airlines have only ham sandwiches and ale on board... And the flight attendants wear skimpy outfits like Southwest Airlines in the 70's.
