Big jump in international passengers for Saudi Airlines

For the first time in the history of Saudi Airlines the number of passengers on international flights exceeded the number of guests in the domestic sector. In 2018, Saudi Airlines achieved a new record when its growing international network transported more than 17 million passengers - a significant jump of more than 11% in the number of international guests compared to 2017.

More than 214 thousand domestic and international flights were operated by Saudia on modern planes, which currently number 154, flew in the skies about 500 thousand flying hours.
