Saudi Arabian carrier SaudiGulf is ordering four Airbus A320s to be delivered early next year.

The carrier, which is also a customer for the Bombardier CSeries, is taking the baseline version of the Airbus although the jets will be equipped with sharklet wing-tips.

SaudiGulf has not indicated an engine selection for the aircraft. Airbus confirms that the A320s are part of a firm contract.

The operator is one of two carriers, along with Qatar Airways' Al Maha, to secure new licences to perform domestic and international Saudi services.

SaudiGulf plans to launch flights from Dammam in the first quarter of 2015 before operating out of Riyadh and Jeddah.
