Dubai’s second airport, Dubai World Central, will launch commercial services for the first time in October this year

nasair, the Saudi Arabian carrier, has announced that it will be the first MENA-based airline to launch passenger operations from the new Dubai World Central.

In a statement, the airline said it would start services at Dubai's second airport and the world's first purpose-built aerotropolis on October 28.

nasair's CEO, Captain François Bouteiller, said: "We are extremely excited to be the first airline to launch passenger services from DWC in October this year.

"We believe that this launch will encourage increased air traffic to the Middle East, especially to Dubai, and further afield to neighboring countries like Saudi Arabia."

The airline plans to operate more than 50 flights per week between Dubai and a number of destinations in Saudi Arabia.

"The launch of passenger operations at DWC is one of our biggest highlights to date and we look forward to offering our passengers even more flexible services with the assistance of another airport in Dubai," he added.

The airline also announced that it has recorded a 20 percent increase in passenger numbers since the beginning of the year, compared to 2012 while its number of flights have increased by 11 percent.

"The past year has been phenomenal as we saw the airline go from strength to strength," said its CEO.

Launched in Saudi Arabia in 2007, nasair now lifts more than 11 million passengers with 950 weekly flights, covering 88 routes.
