Saudi Arabian Airlines is a Saudi Arabian carrier. The company carries out transportation on regular domestic and international flights, serving more than 90 directions. Saudi Arabian Airlines was the largest carrier in the region, but due to the growth of other airports and airlines, it became the third largest.

In 1945, US President Franklin Roosevelt presented an airplane to the King of Saudi Arabia. This event marked the beginning of the development of civil aviation in the country. The national air carrier of Saudi Arabia was founded in September 1946 and is fully subordinate to the Government of the country. From that moment until the end of the 50s, the company continued to grow slowly but steadily and steadily.

In 1962, Saudi Arabian Airlines acquired two new Boeing 720 airliners and became the third Middle East airline to fly jet aircraft. In 1963, according to a memorandum signed by the King of Saudi Arabia, the airline became a completely independent organization.

In the early 70s, the first cargo flights between Saudi Arabia and Europe were launched. In connection with the organization of a new direction of activity, the company purchased new models of airliners. At the same time, a new unit was created to serve members of the royal family and politicians around the world.

In the 80s, the company's work is aimed at expanding the geography of flights: new regular routes are periodically opened. At the same time, in-flight meals were organized and business class services were opened on some flights.

its cool

Eating only a national and well-fed. I did not like that offered alcohol, and generally fly much more convenient than travel by car.

I can not say that the company is bad, but they could pay a little more attention to customers, while the vast majority of reviews have been positive.

The Company primarily take care of the safety of passengers. To me this realization helps to overcome an instinctive fear of flight.

Delayed flight to Moscow more than 40 minutes, but as it turned out it was not yet the test because on arrival we barely stood in line to receive the baggage. The feeling that it is infinite! I thought even that late on another plane, but nothing happened. The food was good, his son was given crayons and coloring. In general, nothing new about the experience of flight can not say with this airline. All the usual, the same as in all others, including the giant time delay.

The airline just super! In May, he flew from Cape Town to Riyadh Riyard (King Khalid) to Airbus A320, then this even now from Riyadh to Bangkok and vice versa, and the final destination was Moscow (Sheremetyevo). Service on board is excellent, served delicious oriental cuisine on the seat mounted displays. Conveniently I am sitting, eating delicious, watching cartoons, movies, listening to music. Friendly stewardess. I recommend.
