Saudia Upgrades Fleet: New Seats & Refurbished Cabins

Saudi Airlines, the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia, has recently announced a significant upgrade to its fleet interiors. The airline has signed a contract with Collins Aerospace, a globally recognized leader in aviation solutions, marking a significant milestone in its commitment to elevate guest experience and advance operational capabilities. Under this agreement, Collins Aerospace will install newly designed seats in Saudi Airlines' upcoming Boeing 787 fleet, scheduled for delivery from early 2026 onwards. This collaboration signifies a significant upgrade to Saudi Airlines' fleet interiors and paves the way for further synergies for Saudi Airlines Group's subsidiary, Saudia Technic.


In addition to the new seats for the 787s, Saudi Airlines has also planned a comprehensive seat retrofit program to enhance both functionality and aesthetics for its current Airbus A330 and Boeing 777 fleet. The retrofit program is set to start in late 2025 and conclude by late 2027. A key feature of the plan involves the establishment of localized repair capabilities as well as select spare manufacturing capabilities with Saudia Technic. This move is expected to improve Saudi Airlines' in-house repair capability, streamline spare support, deploy localized product support, and implement comprehensive solutions to optimize fleet performance and operational efficiency.


The Business Class cabins across Saudi Airlines' wide-body fleet will all consist of private suites, ensuring an elevated and comfortable travel experience for Saudi Airlines guests. "We are thrilled to join forces with Collins Aerospace to introduce state-of-the-art Business and Economy Class seats into our new fleet, as well as retrofit our existing fleet's interiors," commented Rossen Dimitrov, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Saudi Airlines. This partnership represents a significant step forward in Saudi Airlines' commitment to delivering exceptional comfort and convenience to its guests. Additionally, the establishment of additional capabilities in Jeddah underscores Saudi Airlines' dedication to fostering local expertise and driving economic growth.
