Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA), the national flag carrier of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, welcomes all participants to the virtual G20 Summit, which runs from November 21-22 from the nation’s capital, Riyadh.
To mark the nation’s G20 Presidency, the airline adorned the livery of three aircraft types: an A320; a Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 777-300ER.
The custom design and application of the livery was completed by Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI), a sister company of SAUDIA.
The theme of this year’s G20 meeting is titled: “Realizing Opportunities of the 21st Century for All.”
“Saudi Arabia’s national flag carrier is committed to being a global air partner in connecting and strengthening economies and industries; seamlessly connecting travelers across borders; and bolstering logistics and supply chain capabilities,” remarked Saudi Arabian Airlines Director General, His Excellency Mr. Ibrahim bin Abdulrahman Al-Omar.
Coinciding with the momentous occasion is the airline’s 75th year anniversary – one of the first airlines established in the Middle East region.
In recent years, SAUDIA has invested significantly in its fleet, acquiring state-of-the-art new aircraft and now operates one of the three youngest fleets in the skies with an average aircraft age of 5 years.
An award-winning carrier, SAUDIA is one of the Middle East’s largest airlines, operating 144 narrow and widebody aircraft.
The airline route network includes more than 95 destinations across four continents to all 28 domestic airports in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
