Sama Airlines welcomes Royal decree
Riyadh, June 28, 2008
Sama Airlines has welcomed the Royal decree to give discounts to students and medical passengers.
This reflects existing Sama policy and practice, in place for the past 6 months, said an official spokesman.
“We are pleased to advise that Sama already operates in accordance with the Royal decree. In fact, we were the first private aviation company in Saudi Arabia announcing and granting discounts up to 50 per cent for student on domestic flights. We see this as part of our social responsibility, which also extends to supporting many charities such as Insan,” said Sama CEO Andrew Cowen.
“The Royal guidance comes mainly to execute what was agreed in meetings between GACA and Sama and representatives of other airlines, for the benefit of Saudi Arabia and its citizens."
Sama Airlines has allocated and trained its customer services agents to deal with them via Sama Call Centre 9200 05588.
Sama flies to 12 domestic destinations (Dammam, Riyadh, Jeddah, Abha, Jizan, Hail, Arar, Jouf, Tabouk, Rafha, and Bisha) and 10 international destinations across the Middle East (Abu-Dhabi, Sharjah, Amman, Damascus, Latakia, Aleppo, Beirut, Alexandira, Asiut and Sharm el Sheikh).
Sama offers various ways for booking, such as the website (www.flysama.com) or Call Centre 9200 05588, or Sales Centre in all the main cities (Riyadh, Dammam, Jeddah, Madinah, Abha) and the Airports, or our Authorised Travel Agents (Inside Saudi Arabia and outside). There are various payment options also available (Cash, Credit Card, Sadad). – TradeArabia News Service
