Official dignitaries, highnesses, and excellencies were in attendance for the important moment and ceremony. As part of Riyadh Air's introduction to the world, the aircraft will make a public appearance on June 19 at the 54th Paris Air Show.

With modern technology and a new level of passenger experience, the new airline will revolutionize how people travel across the globe. The forward-thinking and modern theme of Saudi Arabia is reflected in the brand identity of Riyadh Air.

The airline is expected to explore the potential of promising sectors to boost economic diversification by contributing $20 billion to non-oil GDP growth, creating more than 200,000 direct and indirect jobs.

The airline honors Saudi Arabia by using indigo colors on the aircraft that are a reflection of the springtime lavender hue that covers the plateaus and deserts of the Kingdom. The delicate curves of the Arabic text are incorporated into the aircraft's design.

Given the Kingdom's unique location at the intersection of Asia, Africa, and Europe, the airline stated that it will begin operating flights in 2025 and that it expects to eventually connect 100 destinations across the world, with more than 60% of the world's population within eight hours of travel.
