Getting to know Saudi Arabian Airlines

The flag carrier of Saudi Arabia was established in 1945 when US president Franklin D. Roosevelt gifted King Abdul Aziz a twin-engine DC-3 (Dakota) HZ-AAX. A couple of months later, an additional two aircraft were purchased and so began Saudi Arabian Airlines’ journey to being one of the largest carriers in the world.

These days they boast a fleet of 139 modern aircraft, covering over 120 destinations throughout the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. While the airline is officially known as Saudi Arabian Airlines, they operate as Saudia.
