The Saudi Arabian national carrier is currently undergoing the largest modernisation and development programme in the company's history, aiming to increase Saudia’s fleet to 200 modern aircraft before the end of 2020.
The two new aircraft are the 22nd and 23rd of 30 total aircraft of the same type, received as part of a contract signed in 2015.
The contact sees Saudia acquiring 50 aircraft; 20 of which are AirbusA330-300. These 20 had all been received by mid-December 2017.
According to Airbus, the A320 is one aircraft in four sizes (A318, A319, A320 and A321), seating from 100 to 240 passengers.
