Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has been named the main sponsor of the Saudi international Air Show, taking place from March 12-14 at Al Thumama Airport in Riyadh.

The Saudi Air Show will be held under the patronage of HRH Prince Sultan Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Chairman of the Saudi Space Agency and Founder and Chairman of the Saudi Aviation Club.

The Saudi Air Show is the first international aviation and aerospace exhibition of its kind in the kingdom.

During the three-day air show, a pavilion space will feature more than 300 exhibitors and many aircraft on static display for viewing. The exhibition will bring together the major players in the aviation industry, and will attract participants from all areas to meet new and existing clients.

Expected attendees include delegates from within the region, as well as international guests including aircraft manufacturers; regional business aircraft selling agents; business and general aviation aircraft manufacturers; airlines; terminal operators; ground handlers; MRO services; charter; and more.
