Riyadh Air is expected to announce order for up to 100 Boeing 737 MAX jets in Dubai

New Saudi Arabian carrier may close firm order for 50 narrow-body jets and 50 more options, according to Bloomberg

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 first of these is Turkish Airlines, which is finalizing a deal for 345 Airbus aircraft, but another carrier with similar ambitions is also expected to be present at the air show, Riyadh Air.

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.

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.
