This thesis investigates the possibility of privatizing Saudi Arabian Airlines. The research study has been divided into different sections. The author investigates the privatization programs in airlines and airports.
A number of airlines have been chosen to evaluate the effectiveness of privatization. An overview of Saudia regional performance was conducted. This was done to show the Saudia position among other regional carriers. The last chapter includes a regression analysis and empirical findings.
The major finding of the research study concluded that Saudi Airlines would have been profitable if it had been privatized at the same time as British Airways. The research has very well supported the government of Saudi Arabia’s decision to privatize the national airline. To materialize the idea, a concrete and thorough study on Saudi Arabian Airlines’ financial and administrative condition has been conducted.
