SAUDIA Achieves Q1 Passenger Growth

Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) reached new heights revealing milestone figures from the first quarter (Q1) of this year’s results.

With the growth of seat capacity at nine percent, total passenger growth has steadily increased, carrying 8.3 million travellers, and a 19 percent increase among international customers.

The airline currently flies to 89 destinations across four continents, and as the national carrier of the Kingdom, the land of the two holy mosques, increasingly guests are flying with SAUDIA for Umrah and Hajj pilgrimage.

The operations have grown steadily both on the domestic and international fronts, flying 52,000 flights during Q1, an increase of five percent during the same period year-on-year.

Commenting on the latest results, H. E. Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, director general, SAUDIA, said, “SAUDIA’s growth and transformation has been underway for several years, and the results have shown how the strategic growth plans, new infrastructure and guest experience investments have contributed to the airline’s recent successes.”
