Saudia's fleet consists of A319s, A320s, A321s, A330s, B77s, 787s and Embraer ERJ-170. In March 2016, Saudia launched new direct flights to the Maldives. Saudia is a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organisation.
The company said the record was attained after it launched the biggest operation in its history within its strategy for the summer which began on June 7 and will continue until Sept. 7.
Under this strategy, Saudia will operate more than 56,000 domestic and international flights with a capacity of more than 12 million seats in addition to the Haj, Umrah and extra flights during the same period which will together have a combined capacity of about two million seats.
Director General Saleh Bin Nasser Al-Jasir said the unprecedented operations in a single day was not a fluke but the result of an accumulated work and collective efforts by all the teams involved.
"This is a new achievement which will be added to the accomplishments of the national carrier and is at the same time an incentive to further improve performance," he said.
Jassir revealed that by the year 2020, Saudia will have a fleet of 200 aircraft of various models to cater to the needs and options of the passengers.
The director general on Monday inspected the lounges of King Abdulaziz International Airport including the platforms to serve the guests and the locations of the stationed security forces and people of special needs.
He asked the heads of the operational sectors and the support companies to be present in the field to provide the best of services to the passengers.
Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has restarted flights to Austrian capital Vienna eight years after suspending the route.
The airline began operating the four-time-weekly route from the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah via the King Khalid Airport in Riyadh to Vienna from June 16.
The service will be operated by a two-class Airbus A320, with the journey time under five and a half hours, a statement said.
“Saudia is pleased to be re-introducing Vienna to the airline’s global destination route map after a stop in services in 2010,” said Abdulrahman Altayeb, vice president, corporate communications said earlier this year.
“Vienna joins a range of other new routes to launch this summer season, and is a city that is popular with travellers both for leisure and business.”
The carrier, which began flights to Moscow on June 12 – just ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Russia – also said it increased the number of daily flights to Russia to four for the first week of the tournament.
Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia), have managed to see off Bangladeshi passengers who have been stranded in Jeddah following a technical fault in the aircraft carrying them. The Saudia flight between Madinah and Dhaka was forced to make an emergency landing at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah on Monday due to a nose gear malfunction. The airline dealt with the passengers very well, evacuating the passengers and crew. The flight reservations were honoured today and all passengers have left Jeddah to go to their desired destination.

The list of countries eligible include the 25 European Schengen signatories, Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Australia, South Korea and South Africa. The issuance of the electronic visas is set to commence in the up coming weeks and should have a direct impact on the ease of journey for many Saudia passengers in the future.
A new city terminal for passengers travelling on state-run Saudi Airlines (Saudia) is set to open at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah on Wednesday. The new check-in facility, located outside the airport on Prince Saud Al-Faisal Street, allows passengers travelling from Jeddah with Saudia to check-in for their flight, drop baggage and then proceed directly to airport security checks.
The city terminal, with five check-in counters, aims to cut waiting times for passengers in queues and is the first of its kind to be opened outside the airport. After it opens on Wednesday, the terminal will operate from 10am to 6pm during week days, Mansour Al-Otaibi, public relations manager of Saudia said.
Saudia will operate flights from Jeddah barely two weeks after Saudi budget carrier flynas made the first commercial flight from Riyadh to Baghdad since 1990. State-owned Saudi Arabian Airlines will launch its first flight to Baghdad in 27 years on Monday, state media said, amid a thaw in ties between the Arab neighbours. State-owned Saudi Arabian Airlines will launch its first flight to Baghdad in 27 years on Monday, state media said, amid a thaw in ties between the Arab neighbours.
The airline, also known as Saudia, will depart from the Red Sea city of Jeddah barely two weeks after Saudi budget carrier flynas made the first commercial flight from Riyadh to Baghdad since 1990. "Saudi Arabian Airlines will inaugurate regular flights between the kingdom and Iraq after an interruption of 27 years," the official Saudi Press Agency reported on Sunday. "The resumption of flights is in line with growing ties between the two brotherly countries." Flights between Iraq and Saudi Arabia were suspended in August 1990 after former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein ordered his troops into neighbouring Kuwait.
After years of tense relations, ties between Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia and Shiite-majority Iraq have begun looking up in recent months. Earlier this month Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and Saudi King Salman held the first meeting of the joint Saudi-Iraqi coordination council, which is aimed at upgrading strategic ties. Iraq is seeking economic benefits from closer ties with Riyadh as both countries suffer from a protracted oil slump. Saudi Arabia is also seeking to counter Iranian influence in Iraq. Private carrier flynas, in which Saudi billionaire Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal holds a 34-percent stake, also plans to expand its routes from Saudi airports to major cities across Iraq.
Saudi Arabian Airlines commenced flights between Jeddah (JED) and Mauritius (MRU) on 14 September. The 5,090-kilometre link will be flown by the SkyTeam member three times weekly on its fleet of 787-9s, with no other carrier operating direct competition.
“We hope that business between Mauritius and Saudi Arabia will grow and be sustainable. This will obviously improve trade and tourism between the two countries,” said Nasser Al Jasser, DG of Saudi Arabian Airlines. Jeddah becomes the second destination in the Middle East served non-stop from Mauritius, with the other being Dubai, a route which Emirates operates twice-daily on its A380s.
