About Saudi Arabian Airlines
Saudia is the flag carrier airline of Saudi Arabia, based in Jeddah. As a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organization, IATA, and SkyTeam alliance, it operates domestic and international scheduled flights to variety of destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Saudia’s main operational base is at Jeddah-King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED). Other major hubs are Riyadh-King Khalid International Airport (RUH), and Dammam-King Fahd International Airport (DMM). .
Saudia started out in 1945 with a single twin-engine DC-3 (Dakota) HZ-AAX given to King Abdul Aziz as a gift by the U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This was followed months later with the purchase of two more DC-3s, and these formed the nucleus of what in few years later was to become one of the world's largest airlines.
Today, Saudia has some one hundred and thirty-nine (139) aircrafts, including the latest and most advanced wide-bodied jets presently available such as Airbus A320s, A321s, A330s, Boeing 777s, and continues efforts to modernize its fleet by acquiring new aircraft including Boeing Dreamliners.
