Saudi Arabian Airlines takes delivery of the first aircraft of the new fleet of 70 Airbus and Boeing planes at the French city of Toulouse Friday.
The first aircraft to be delivered to Saudia is a 120-seat Airbus320, according to Abdullah Al-Ajhar, Saudia's Assistant Director for Public Relations.
“This plane has 24 seats for first class while the other 96 seats are for economy class,” Al-Ajhar said.
He added that other planes would arrive later.
“The new fleet of aircraft will help Saudia support its services by making extra flights available on both domestic and international routes, and will help it meet the increasing demand on air travel,” he said.
He pointed out that the Airbus320 is equipped with the latest and the most proficient engines in the world, making it the most popular aircraft with all air carriers.
Al-Ajhar revealed that Saudi Arabian Airlines will receive nine Airbus 320 aircraft before the end of the year.
Saudia's new 70-aircraft fleet consists of 35 Airbus320, 15 Airbus321, eight Airbus330 and 12 Boeing787.
Saudia is currently operating its flights to different local, regional and international destinations with the use of a fleet of 89 airplanes ranging from McDonnell Douglas, Airbus, Boeing to Embraer.
