SAUDIA launches new corporate travel division and online platform
Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) has launched a new division for its global corporate travel partners.
SAUDIA Business, which was unveiled at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) this week, will specialise in B2B travel solutions for corporate, agency and MICE clients.
The airline has created an account management department to support clients booking through a new online platform.
SAUDIA Business has a dedicated meetings and events team to assist with corporate travel needs and event organisers globally.
The airline said the new division will “serve and support clients with busy schedules who frequently go on business trips, whether for meetings, incentive travel, conventions, or exhibitions”.
Hazem Sonbol, vice president of sales at SAUDIA, said: “This is not just a new service department; it is an extension to the SAUDIA brand, a show of dedication to pursuing excellence.
“SAUDIA Business respects our guests’ time and understands the corporate standard with a service that will live up to it. We are looking forward to serving our business partners and taking care of their travel needs through SAUDIA Business.”
SAUDIA Business will offer new exclusive incentives for corporate clients through a Business Loyalty programme allowing redemption of points with every booking.
Existing major international clients that will make the transition to the new platform include ARAMCO, SABIC, SNB, BAE Systems and Amazon.
