SINGAPORE, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's new airline, Riyadh Air, plans to be operating commercially by the end of the first half of 2025, chief operating officer Peter Bellew said on Tuesday on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow.

The airline, owned by the kingdom's sovereign wealth fund, said in November it had concluded its narrowbody campaign and was expected to announce the order soon, although no specific timeframe has so far been given. (Reporting by Joe Brock. Editing by Gerry Doyle)
