The only Saudi brand to secure four Grand Prix awards and emerge as the most awarded brand of the year.

Saudia, the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia, has achieved significant recognition at the Dubai Lynx 2024 Awards, marking its first participation with an extraordinary achievement. The airline’s innovative product, ProtecTasbih, has set a new benchmark for excellence in creative communications.

Saudia, the most awarded brand during the 2024 edition of the show, earned an impressive set of awards including 4 Grand Prix, 5 Silver, and 2 Bronze awards. This remarkable accomplishment marks Saudia as not only the most winning brand overall but also the most awarded Saudi brand in the history of Dubai Lynx 2024, positioning it as a pioneer in the region’s creative landscape.

ProtecTasbih, the winning product launched by Saudia, has revolutionized the traditional practice of tasbih by integrating hand sanitization into prayer beads. ProtecTasbih embodies a perfect blend of spiritual purpose and modern health awareness, catering to the diverse needs of pilgrims during the holy month of Ramadan and Umrah season.

The innovative prayer beads utilize tea tree oil as a sanitizing element, offering a dual function that ensures both spiritual devotion and hygiene. By seamlessly integrating the oil into a solid bead through advanced molding techniques, Saudia has introduced a transformative product that prioritizes the well-being of its guests. Essam Akhonbay, Vice President of Marketing at Saudia, stated, “At Saudia, our commitment to the well-being of all our guests is primary. We take pride in introducing a unique product that enhances the pilgrimage experience, allowing our guests to fully immerse themselves in their spiritual journey.”
