How is SaudiGulf doing?



They're not doing that well, and keep complaining about the overcapacity in the domestic market so that's why SaudiGulf is shifting its focus to overseas routes because the domestic market now has “some of the lowest fares in the world” as their CEO says.!

Are there any traffic figures for AMM or Aqaba?

I reckon with the new low-cost competition, those airports must be booming. Travelling from Europe to Jordan used to be quite expensive due to the relative lack of options (RJ or connecting with TK or something like that) and no low-cost. And Jordan has a lot of potential as a tourist destination (if only for Petra and Wadi Rum).

Flyadeal is a subsidiary of Saudia Holding Company, and it is the only ULCC in the region. there were news that Saudia and Flyadeal are going to work together in the future, so the way i see it is that Saudia might give Flyadeal all of those domestic skinny routes and thus Saudia could focus more on the premium domestic routes such JED-RUH, however Saudi aviation market is facing alot of competition these days with all the high speed trains operating recently in Saudi Arabia.

The first flight for the B7810 was to Amman (I guess for crew familiarization) . They are now flown to Jeddah and Seoul
