200 destinations: The target for Saudi Arabian Airlines
Monday 17, February 2014
Saudi Arabian Airlines has announced plans to expand its operations to more than 200 destinations worldwide with minimum connections.
"We want to reinforce our presence in Europe, North America, Asia, especially in China and Indonesia as well as to open new markets in Russia, Mexico, Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan and Czech Republic," said Abdul Aziz Al-Hazmi, CEO of Saudia.
He was addressing a joint press conference with Michael Wisbrun, managing director of SkyTeam.
He said Saudia joined SkyTeam, a 19-member global alliance of airlines in May 2012, as part of its efforts to offer high quality services to passengers.
"We have implemented the alliance's premium service SkyPriority in almost all its stations and its value customers have started enjoying it," he said.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
