This is another important step in our ambitious growth journey, as we build our network of blue-chip partners across the Kingdom - spurring the expansion of our business and widening the opportunity set for our customers. We look forward to working closely with the SAUDIA team on what we are sure will be a long and fruitful collaboration.”
