National carrier Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has received its 10th Boeing 797-9 Dreamliner.

The aircraft will join the fleet of Saudia, which is currently implementing an unprecedented programme for modernisation and development, aiming to reach 200 modern aircraft in 2020 within the framework of the transformation plan at Saudi Arabian Airlines Organization, its companies and strategic units.

Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, director general of Saudia, said the plane is the 21st new aircraft to join the fleet this year.

The company had received in the first half of this year's new aircraft (20 planes), and 11 additional planes are expected to be delivered to Saudia by the end of 2017, which will bring the total number of aircraft joining the fleet of the national carrier this year to 32.
