Saudi Arabian Airlines has announced that it will receive two more aircraft as part of its new fleet of 320 Airbus planes Wednesday.
The new planes, which will be handed over in the French city of Toulouse, are part of a 70-aircraft fleet that the company will use to modernize its services in order to better serve its operational and marketing plans.
Abdullah Al-Ajhar, Saudia's assistant director for Public Relations, who made the announcement, said that the two aircraft are 120-seat Airbus 320s.
“Each plane has 24 seats in first class while the other 96 seats are in economy,” Al-Ajhar said. He added that other planes in the new fleet will arrive soon.
“The new fleet will help support the company's efforts to add service to new destinations and increase scheduled flights,” he added.
Al-Ajhar said that the new planes will also help meet Saudia's major requirements on domestic and international sectors, especially during peak seasons.
He said that the Airbus 320 is equipped with the latest and the most efficient engines in the world, making it very popular with most air carriers.
“The new Airbus also has more space in the overhead luggage compartment. It is also equipped with the latest audio and video facilities,” he added.
Al-Ajhar revealed that with the arrival of the two airplanes, Saudi Arabian Airlines will have received four Airbus 320 aircraft. Saudia's new 70-odd aircraft fleet consists of 35 Airbus 320s, 15 Airbus 321s, eight Airbus 330s and 12 Boeing 787s. – SG
