yes this is temporary livery. atlasjet will this aircraft to saudia leasing. when 180 hours in atlasjet flight is load, then can fly to saudia. in next month come 2nd A330 for atlasjet and then lease to saudia. I can not understand, can saudia not lease this aircraft direct from ILFC?

Its not matter of just the airplane. Saudia needs crews.
Such ACMI leasing which Atlasjet has previously done with A320s for Saudia provides a well timed and priced lift solution for Saudia. (off course I hear the Atlasjet employees hate the Saudi assignments)
