The airline operated domestic and international scheduled and charter services, and wass based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Its main base of operations was King Abdulaziz International Airport, with a hub at King Khalid International Airport, Riyadh. The airline launched operations in July 2005, and was entirely owned by the Saudi National Air Services. It flies passengers in the region to both domestic and international destinations. At 1 April, 2009 bankruptcy was declared, quite likely due to the current financial crisis. All aircraft were operated by National Air Services. After operations ceased, the aircraft were stored.
