  • Description

    Saudi Arabia is to become the first Arab nation to own a fleet of wide-bodied aircraft, trade-named the TriStar.

    A United States aircraft firm is testing and putting the final touches to two of the four jets due to be delivered to Saudi Arabian Airlines in the summer -- and the first TriStar will be in operation from August.

    The airline decided to order the improved model of the TriStar to enable their aircraft to cope better with high altitude and high temperature at certain airports.

    The fleet will add to the more than 100 TriStars already in service with eight other airlines around the world.
