Saudia, Saudi Arabia's national flag carrier, has embarked on an ambitious journey to redefine luxury and comfort in air travel through a strategic partnership with Collins Aerospace. This collaboration marks a transformative phase in Saudia's operational capabilities and guest experience, focusing on a significant upgrade of the fleet's interiors.

Scheduled to commence in early 2026, Saudia's upcoming Boeing 787 fleet will be outfitted with newly designed seats, courtesy of Collins Aerospace, a name synonymous with innovation in aviation solutions. The retrofit program extends to Saudia’s current Airbus A330 and Boeing 777 fleet, set to begin in late 2025 and wrap up by late 2027. Highlighting the commitment to unmatched comfort, the Business Class cabins across Saudia’s wide-body fleet will feature private suites, ensuring an unparalleled travel experience.

A notable aspect of this agreement is the development of localized repair and select spares manufacturing capabilities in collaboration with Saudia Technic. This initiative not only enhances Saudia's in-house repair capabilities but also supports the localization of the aviation industry content, fostering local expertise and contributing to economic growth.

Rossen Dimitrov, Saudia's Chief Customer Experience Officer, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, emphasizing its role in setting new standards of excellence in the aviation sector. “This synergy with Collins Aerospace is a leap towards offering exceptional comfort and convenience to our guests," Dimitrov remarked, highlighting the broader implications for the Saudia Group.

From Collins Aerospace's perspective, Vice President of Business Development Cynthia Muklevicz shared the excitement about deepening the relationship with Saudia. She pointed out that the collaboration is poised to exceed expectations with innovative solutions that enhance comfort and redefine luxury in air travel.

The partnership between Saudia and Collins Aerospace aims to establish a new benchmark in air travel, focusing on innovation, comfort, and style. This venture not only promises to elevate the passenger experience but also signifies Saudia's dedication to excellence and innovation in the global aviation industry. As Saudia prepares to introduce these advancements, passengers can look forward to an unmatched level of luxury and convenience, setting a new standard for air travel excellence.
