Saudia Airlines repaints planes to commemorate Saudi Arabia’s 91st National Day
Saudia Airlines has repainted one of its planes to resemble the carrier’s old aircrafts in celebration of Saudi Arabia’s upcoming 91st National Day.
The airline shared a video of workers repainting the aircraft to look like Saudia’s planes from the 1980s and 1990s, which had a green stripe across it that was the company’s logo from 1981 to 1996.

The national carrier also painted the number 75 on the plane to mark the start of its operations 75 years ago in 1946.
Another aircraft was also repainted to commemorate the Kingdom’s National Day. Pictures of the late King Abdulaziz, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman were added to an aircraft’s vertical stabilizer to showcase the country’s leadership.
