    Have you asked Saudi Air Lines this question? – DavidSupportsMonica Jul 24 '19 at 0:13

    I don't know about Saudi in particular, but with most airlines you don't need a passport number to book a ticket. You may just (depending on the destination country) be required to update the booking with passport information at some time before checkin. – hmakholm left over Monica Jul 24 '19 at 0:30

Yes. Usually you can change the passport and validity (and other data). Often such data is not mandatory on booking time.

Just check carefully when you should put the definitive data. If there is advanced personal information which are sent to destination country. It can vary from few hours (so at checkin) to few days before departure.

Just you should be now careful on putting the correct name (which will be on the new passport). Changing names on tickets is much more difficult, also if it is just correcting transliteration or name correction (e.g. maiden name).
