Saudi Arabian drifts towards Airbus

SV has been a previous purchaser of Airbus planes with the A300 in the 1980s. However of late it has been sticking true to the US partnership by buying Boeing (777) and Boeing MD (MD90s and MD11s). However today it signaled a new direction by ordering A330-300s 8 of them.

So now they are clearly moving towards an Airbus anchored fleet with a further 32 A320s previously ordered which will no doubt anchor their local and regional destinations replacing the MD90s and the Embraers operation commuter flights.
