The Dubai Airshow is about to start and at least two major orders are already being considered for the event in the Middle East.
The new airline funded by the Saudi government is poised to announce an order for up to 100 Boeing 737 MAX jets, according to Bloomberg.
The agreement provides for 50 firm orders and another 50 options, but the outlet did not reveal which models Riyadh intends to choose.
Launched as a global carrier with the aim of competing with Emirates, Qatar and Etihad, Riyadh Air is expected to debut its first flights in 2025.
At the beginning of the year, the airline closed its first aircraft order with Boeing for 35 787-9 Dreamliner.
Riyadh Air plans to serve 100 destinations by 2030.
