Saudi Arabian Airlines to boost fleet for domestic flights
Saudi Arabian Airlines said it intends to purchase 15 new medium sized aircraft with a capacity of between 50 and 100 passengers for use on domestic flights.
The announcement followed a decision by the Saudi cabinet to establish the Civil Aviation Corp. as an independent body that will operate as a commercial organisation responsible for streamlining and developing the civil aviation and air transport industry.
According to BNA, Dr. Khaled Bakr, director-general of Saudi Arabian Airlines, said contracts for the purchase of the new aircraft would be signed next month in the presence of Prince Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz, Minister of Defence and Aviation, who is also Chairman of the airline's board of directors.
