“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 Saudia.

Additionally, a comprehensive seat retrofit program with an aim to enhance both functionality and aesthetics, is planned for Saudia’s current Airbus A330 and Boeing 777 fleet, starting in late 2025 and concluding by late 2027.

The airline says its Business Class cabin across its wide-body fleet will all consist of private suites, ensuring an elevated and comfortable travel experience for Saudia guests.

This will improve Saudia’s in-house repair capability, streamline spares support, deploy localized product support, and implement comprehensive solutions to optimize fleet performance and operational efficiency.

“This partnership not only expands our longstanding relationship, but further supports the transformative airline growth underway at Saudia. Our team is dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that exceed expectations, and we look forward to collaborating closely with Saudia to redefine the standards of comfort and luxury in air travel,” noted Cynthia Muklevicz, Vice President of Business Development at Collins Aerospace.

Saudia and Collins Aerospace will leverage their respective expertise to redefine the passenger experience, aiming to create a seamless fusion of innovation, comfort, and style, setting a new standard for air travel excellence.
