Boeing and flyadeal announced the Middle East carrier is growing its fleet with the 737 MAX to take advantage of the airplane’s fuel efficiency, range and passenger comforts.
- flyadeal, a subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Airlines, offers affordable flights within Saudi Arabia. The airline committed to ordering 30 airplanes with options for 20 more in a deal that would be valued at up to $5.9 billion at list price.
- The deal is subject to both sides concluding final terms and conditions and a purchase agreement. It will appear on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website once all contingencies are cleared.
- Over the past year, the airline has conducted an evaluation process for 50 narrowbody airplanes to support domestic growth and potential international expansion.
- While flyadeal has been operating new Airbus A320s, the airline says it has selected the 737 MAX for the future.
