Riyadh Air is set to have an advanced fleet of aircrafts with the latest cutting-edge technology, making for a smooth sailing type of flight once it’s launched. The airline plans on launching its first flight by 2025 and connecting over 100 destinations all over the world by 2030.

Tony Douglas, CEO of Riyadh Air, said: “We are delighted to announce that we have obtained “RX” as our IATA code, which will be on every touchpoint that our guests see as they take flight with us. The code reflects our ambition to be a digitally-led airline, having the connection of innovation and state-of-the-art technology.”
