Changing your travel plans due to Coronavirus restrictions
flyadeal is pleased to be increasing our schedule, offering more opportunities for you to travel for business or pleasure within the Kingdom, but we also understand that many Customers have questions about how to travel safely or the status of bookings impacted by previous travel restrictions.

Options for Customers whos’ travel plans are affected by the suspension of International Travel effective 21st December 2020
Whilst flyadeal flights are not affected by the suspension of international travel we do understand that for some Customers their flyadeal trip was dependent on an international flight and their journey will now have to be deferred. Any Customers who had confirmed international flight bookings to or from Saudi Arabia for travel between 21st December 2020 and 3rd January 2021 may request to cancel their booking and receive a credit of the fare paid which will be valid for one year from date of issuance.

If you were booked to travel on a flight between 21st March and 30th May, or on a flight which was cancelled in June or July due to the scheduling restrictions placed on Saudi airports. your booking will have been cancelled and an email sent to the contact details in your booking detailing your credit.
All credits issued are valid for one year from date of issuance and can be used as full or part payment towards any new bookings during this time. If you would prefer to receive a refund, please complete our online refund form and our team will process your request as soon as possible. Please note we are only able to refund to the original payment method, so if the payment was made by someone on your behalf by credit or debit card, they will receive the refund directly to their card account.
