Is The A300 Fleet Of SV Or AA Older?

Fri Oct 06, 2006 9:44 pm

How old is each fleet?
And how much longer does SV intend to keep its A300 fleet?

AAs are A300B4-605R that were delivered between 1988 and 1993 while SVs are A300B4-620 that were delivered in 1984. First exterior difference between the two types, is the lack of winglets on SV fleet.

They are already being phased out. They are down to the last 4. All will be gone by February.

Since Saudia last renewed her fleet about 10 -12 years ago they purchased 777 and 744, they are due for the next phase of expansion or replacements. The A300-600 they had were the first ones of that version.

No replacements have been ordered yet, although it is said that SV will announce an overhaul of their widebody fleet by the end of this year (but don't hold your breath).

Currently they're putting MD90s on the routes that were operated by the busses.
