Saudi Arabian Airlines may have a lower profile that its neighbouring counterparts, but with a fleet equal to Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways combined, the national carrier is a force to reckoned with.

Sitting at the helm of this empire is Khalid Al Molhem, who has spent a significant amount to upgrade technology, order new Airbus A320s and A330s, and refresh the interiors of 22 Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. He has reduced the workforce from a peak of 25,000 to 15,000 and signed the carrier up to the SkyTeam global alliance.
