200 destinations: The target for Saudi Arabian Airlines

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.
