April 25, 2016 /

Saudi Arabia’s new state-owned discount carrier plans to build a fleet of as many as 50 aircraft by 2020 and will choose within weeks between narrow-body models made by Airbus Group SE and Boeing Co. Flyadeal will select either Airbus A320s or Boeing 737s that it will lease or obtain through a transfer of orders from parent company Saudi Arabian Airlines, the group’s director general, Saleh Al Jasser, told reporters in Dubai. The low-cost unit will serve domestic and regional markets within a four- to five-hour radius from its hub in Jeddah, using a single-class cabin.
