RIYADH: Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) said it carried almost five percent more passengers last year compared with 2014.
It flew 29,492,710 passengers in 2015, up 1,309,095 from the previous year, the airline said in a release of annual statistics which excluded financial data.
The carrier restated its aim of expanding its fleet to 200 aircraft by 2020.
In June last year, it placed an $8 billion order with France-based Airbus for 50 planes.
They will be used for domestic flights, the airline says.
