Saudi Arabian flag-carrier Saudia and its budget spin-off Flyadeal are ordering another 105 Airbus A320neo-family jets.

The aircraft comprise 93 A321neos and 12 A320neos.

Saudia Group, the umbrella company of the two carriers, unveiled the agreement during the Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh on 20 May.

Fifty-four of the A321neos will be assigned to Saudia, while the remaining 39 – as well as all the A320neos – will go to Flyadeal.

No engine selection or delivery dates have been disclosed.

“Saudia has ambitious operational objectives to meet growing demand,” says group director general Ibrahim Al-Omar.

“We are increasing flights and seat capacity across our existing 100-plus destinations on four continents, with plans for further expansion.”

Saudi Arabia’s government has been seeking to reinforce air transport and tourism under its Vision 2030 initiative.

Airbus says the deal increases Saudia Group’s firm orders for A320neo-family single-aisle jets to 144.
