Saudi Arabian Sama
plans to add four Boeing
737-300s by year-end. The start-up carrier has been operating since March with a pair of 148-seat 737-300s on ﬁve domestic routes. It was expected to add two more aircraft by the end of April and is seeking four additional aircraft to operate an eight aircraft fleet by January 2008. The carrier’s business plan envisions about 35 737s
by the end of the decade. Sama will build its fleet around the 737-300 model but could take a Next Generation model, although Boeing now says it is sold out on its NG production line through the end of 2011.
