RIYADH: Saudia Group has made the largest aircraft purchase with Airbus in the Kingdom’s history by agreeing to purchase an additional 105 A320neo family aircraft.

The A320neo and A321neo models are part of the $19 billion deal that was revealed by the group’s director general, Ibrahim Al-Omar, at the Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh. The low-cost airline in the group, flyadeal, and Saudia will share these aircraft.

Flyadeal will receive 12 A320neo and 39 A321neo aircraft, while Saudia will purchase 54 A321neo aircraft. The first aircraft is expected to be delivered to the group in the first quarter of 2026.

The agreement was announced in the presence of Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, executive vice president of sales at Airbus, Director General of Saudia Group Ibrahim Al-Omar, and Minister of Transport and Logistic Services Saleh bin Nasser AI-Jasser.

“Saudia has ambitious operational objectives to meet growing demand,” stated Al-Omar. With plans for future growth, we are expanding our network of over 100 destinations across four continents by adding more flights and seats.

The advancement of Saudi Vision 2030 draws an increasing number of visitors, tourists, business owners, and pilgrims annually. This drove our choice to close this big deal, which will boost local content, generate employment, and boost the country’s economy.
