Saudia Group, comprising Saudia and flyadeal, has finalised an order for an additional 105 A320neo Family aircraft, bolstering its fleet to meet escalating demand. The order includes 12 A320neo and 93 A321neo aircraft, augmenting Saudia Group’s Airbus backlog to 144 A320neo family aircraft.

“Saudia has ambitious operational objectives to meet growing demand. We are increasing flights and seat capacity across our existing 100+ destinations on four continents, with plans for further expansion,” said Ibrahim Al-Omar, Director General of Saudia Group.

“The progress of Saudi Vision 2030 is attracting more visits, tourists, entrepreneurs, and pilgrims each year. This motivated our decision to secure this significant deal, which will create jobs, increase local content, and contribute to the national economy,” he added.

“The new additions of the A320neo family aircraft will play a vital role in contributing to Saudi Arabia’ ambitious Vision 2030 plan,” said Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, Executive Vice President Sales of the Commercial Aircraft business.

“It will enable Saudia Group’s strategy to advance the Kingdom’s aviation capabilities while enabling both airlines to benefit from the A320neo Family’s exceptional efficiency, superior economics, highest level of passenger comfort as well as lower fuel-burn and emissions.”

Saudi Arabia’s National Tourism Strategy aims to attract over 150 million tourists by 2030, fostering significant opportunities for global aviation. The Airbus order contributes to the Kingdom’s aspiration to become a leading global tourism destination.

The A320 Family, with over 18,000 orders from 300 customers worldwide, is renowned as the world’s most sought-after single-aisle aircraft. The A321neo, the largest member of the A320neo Family, offers unparalleled range and performance, featuring advanced engines and Sharklets for enhanced fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Airbus aims for its entire fleet to operate with up to 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) by 2030, aligning with sustainability goals.
