The airline company Saudia (ex-Saudi Arabian Airlines) has chosen a retro livery for the third of twenty Airbus A321neo expected
The next A321neo of the Saudi national company based at the airport of Jeddah-King Abdulazizregistered HZ-ASAC, came out of the paint workshops of Hamburg-Finkenwerder dressed in a retro livery of the most beautiful effect – and already seen on two of its Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. Saudia’s second A321neo (HZ-ASAC) left Airbus’ facilities in Hamburg on July 12.
Saudia is expecting twenty A321neos as well as fifteen A321XLR (whose future Business class suite was presented last May), with 35 options.
Ordered since 2016, the A321neo of the alliance company SkyTeam are configured to accommodate 20 passengers in Business class and 168 in Economy (188 seats). It also has forty A320s and fifteen A321s.
