Saudi Arabian Airlines Vice President Network Sales, Richard Nuttall, said, “Saudia is in the middle of a major international expansion program as a part of its Transformation 2020 initiative. International passenger growth from outside Saudi Arabia grew 30% in 2017 and we are looking to maintain this growth. We have made major product investments and our widebody fleet now has an average age of three years. Last year Saudia was named ‘World’s Most Improved Airline 2017’ by Skytrax. Saudia is also a member of the Skyteam Alliance. We believe this is a great time to expand our presence in Australia, and we are very pleased to have APG as our partner.”

Saudi Arabian Airlines carried 32 million passengers in 2017 and is set to grow its fleet to over 200 aircraft by the end of 2020. The airline currently flies to 90 destinations across four continents with a fleet of 147 narrow and widebody aircraft.
