This new zone is one of the Riyadh Season zones, and is being constructed in cooperation with Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia). The zone offers fresh adventures on 5 planes. The zone allows visitors to enjoy a variety of cuisines from renowned restaurants. Additionally, the zone features thrilling activities such as a horror themed experience on an airplane.
The announcement came after GEA CEO Eng. Faisal Bafarat and Saudia Group Chief Marketing Officer Khaled Tash in the presence of HE Eng. Ibrahim bin Abdul Rahman Al-Omar, Director General of Saudia Group, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This agreement is a joint effort between Riyadh Season and Saudi Airlines to create the zone.
This brings delight to travelers who enjoy the travel rituals without going too far. These planes are equipped to offer an entertaining experience and serve delicious meals. More information will be available and announced later.
Saudia started out in 1945 with a single twin-engine DC-3 (Dakota) HZ-AAX given to King Abdul Aziz as a gift by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This was followed months later with the purchase of 2 more DC-3s, and these formed the nucleus of what a few years later was to become one of the world’s largest airlines. Today, Saudia has 144 aircraft including the latest and most advanced wide-bodied jets presently available: Airbus A320-214, Airbus321, Airbus A330-343, Boeing B777-368ER, and Boeing B787.
Saudia continually strives to improve its environmental performance as an integral part of its business strategy and operating methods. The airline is committed to becoming an industry leader in sustainability and to minimize the environmental impact of its operations in the air, on the ground, and throughout the entire supply chain.
