Riyadh – Mubasher: Saudi Arabia is considered a promising market for the new Boeing 797 aircrafts that aim mid-range flights, Bloomberg reported, citing Boeing’s president for the MENA countires, Ahmed Jazzar as saying.

“If you’re talking about a short distance between two city pairs with thick traffic, you need a big airplane and you need it to be designed for the short hops,” the agency added.

“[From] Jeddah to Riyadh traffic, those are two major cities, is one of the heaviest-traveled city pairs in the world, so you need wide-body aircraft for that, but it’s a short distance, so it’s uniquely positioned for a bigger-than-737 aircraft,” according to Jazzar.

Boeing hedl discussions with the possible customers about the design of aircraft, Kevin McAllister, the firm’s commercial airplanes chief stated.
