Middle-Eastern carrier Saudi Arabian Airlines has selected Goodrich to provide wheels and carbon brakes for the airline's fleet of 12 Boeing 777-300ERs.

Under the agreement, Goodrich will supply the carrier with Duracarb proprietary braking systems, which offer a 35% brake life advantage compared with the competition, said the manufacturer.
