RIA is Saudi Arabia’s new airline, which is set to be launched sometime during the final quarter of 2022. RIA will become Saudi’s second national carrier but unlike the current Saudia, which operates from Jeddah, RIA will be based out of Riyadh. The new airline will begin operations using small narrow bodies planes for regional flights initially. Its long term plans are to become a major international carrier, completing with Emirates and Qatar Airways on major routes. It is believed that deals are being struck with Boeing for its 737 MAX planes, which have a range of less than 4,000 miles.
