Saudi Arabia is Ready for Riyadh Air's Takeoff Next Year

Saudi Arabia is getting ready to welcome a new airline, Riyadh Air, next year. The goal is to make the country a bigger spot for tourists. Tony Douglas, the boss of Riyadh Air, shared at a big event in Singapore that for a country to do well globally, it needs top-notch air travel options. He was at the Aviation Festival Asia 2024, where he talked about how important this is.

Right now, Saudia is the main airline flying from Saudi Arabia. But by 2030, according to Quartz, it will move its main hub from Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport to King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah. Saudia focuses a lot on flying pilgrims to Mecca, a big part of Saudi's tourism.

Riyadh Air is not looking to compete with big names like Emirates or Qatar Airways. Instead, it wants to focus on helping Saudi's business world. Douglas mentioned he had to fly roundabout way to Singapore through Dubai, which shows why Riyadh Air is needed.

Saudi Arabia has big plans to not just rely on oil money. By 2030, it wants tourism to bring in 10% of its GDP. Riyadh Air is a big step towards making that happen, aiming to connect the country better with the world.
