Saudia Group Orders More Airbus Jets

A firm order for an additional 105 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft has been placed by Saudia Group, which owns Saudia, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) national flag carrier. The order comprises 12 A320neo and 93 A321neo aircraft, taking Saudia Group’s order backlog with Airbus to 144 A320neo family jets. Of the 105, 54 A321neo aircraft will be added to Saudia’s fleet, whereas flyadeal will get 12 A320neo and 39 A321neo aeroplanes.

Saudia wants to increase flights and seating capacity across its existing network of over 100 destinations across four continents. Specifically, raise capacity to 330 million and expand the number of destinations to 250 by the end of the decade. This will significantly boost KSA’s aviation capabilities and meet the goals of Saudi Vision 2030. The nation targets more than 150 million visitors by 2030, including tourists, entrepreneurs and pilgrims. Achieving this will create more employment opportunities and popularise local content, contributing to the country’s economy.
