flynas, the Saudi national air carrier, has announced it will launch the first direct international flights into AlUla International Airport from November 19, with services operating from Dubai and Kuwait.

Flights will operate three times weekly from Dubai International and twice weekly from Kuwait International Airport.

An expansion of domestic services to AlUla will see frequencies increase to four times weekly from Riyadh and three times weekly from both Jeddah and Dammam.

The first flight from Dubai on November 19 is timed to coincide with the next musical event at Maraya. Faia Younan, the young soprano and her world-class band will perform live at the iconic mirrored venue.
