Saudia Group orders 105 A320neo Family aircraft

Move to support Saudi Arabia’s aviation goals

The Saudia Group, represented by Saudia, the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia, and flyadeal, the group’s low-cost carrier, recently signed a firm order for an additional 105 A320neo Family aircraft.

The order comprises 12 A320neo and 93 A321neo aircraft. This increases Saudia Group’s Airbus aircraft order backlog to 144 A320neo family aircraft.

The agreement was announced at the Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh in the presence of HE Saleh Bin Nasser AlJasser, Minister of Transport and Logistic Services of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; HE. Engr. Ibrahim Al-Omar, Director General, Saudia Group and Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, Executive Vice President Sales, Commercial Aircraft Business.

Significant deal

“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. This motivated our decision to secure this significant deal, which will create jobs, increase local content, and contribute to the national economy,” stated HE Al-Omar.

“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,” commented de Saint-Exupery.

As with all Airbus aircraft, the entire A320 Family is already able to operate with up to 50% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Airbus aims for all its aircraft to be capable of operating with up to 100% SAF by 2030, a press release concluded.
