Riyadh – Mubasher: flyadeal unveiled a landmark order for 51 narrow-body Airbus aircraft to boost its expansion plans, according to a press release.

The announcement is a part of Saudia Group’s deal for a record 105 aircraft order, which was unveiled on the opening day of the third edition of the Future Aviation Forum.

Under the historic agreement, flyadeal will have 12 Airbus A320neos and 39 A321neo aircraft. This supports the airline’s growth strategy to triple the fleet size from the current 32 all-Airbus A320neo and ceo variants to more than 100 aircraft by 2030.

Steven Greenway, CEO of flyadeal, said: “Today’s historic announcement is a clear statement of intent of flyadeal’s goals as we prepare for the next phase of dynamic growth beyond 2026 when we begin taking deliveries of the new aircraft.”

“flyadeal has exciting plans with the new fleet, especially the A321neos which will give us the flexibility on high-demand routes and to slot-constrained airports by offering up to 240 seats that represent 30 per cent more capacity than our current 186-seat A320s,” Greenway added.

The current fleet of flyadeal comprises 21 A320neo and 11 A320ceo variants operating from three hubs in the Kingdom, including Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dammam.

In an interview with Mubasher on the slides of the three-day conference, the Chief Commercial Officer at Riyadh Air, Vincent Coste, unveiled expansion plans until  2030 to back the Saudi employment ecosystem.
