Saudia opens new office in New Delhi

NEW DELHI, February 11, 2018

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) has opened a new office in New Delhi, India in the historical Connaught Place, located in the central business district in the Indian capital.

The new city office was opened under the patronage of the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to India, Dr Saud Bin Mohammed Al- Sati, in the attendance of diplomatic corps of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in India, senior officials from the airline, customers and travel agents in India.

The new head office in India for Saudia welcomed guests for all of their booking requirements with the airline. During the inauguration event, officials participated in a ribbon cutting and reveal ceremony.

Dr Al-Sati also invited guests for a tour of the facilities, accompanied by Saudia country manager in India Ibrahim Bin Mohammed Al-Qubbi, who briefed guests on the state-of-the-art Saudia fleet and new services being provided to guests onboard.

The airline’s new office includes a service counter for ticket sales, training and development, reservations, travel agents, finance, administration, and a stakeholder coordination office with Indian aviation authority. The office provides guests with expedient services, enabled by modern electronic reservation and ticket issuing systems.

The growing ties between both countries is attributed to the fact that Saudia caters to a large number of guests from the Indian community, whether it is for Umrah and Hajj travel, or Indian expatriates who are currently employed in the Kingdom, or travelling in transit with Saudia to reach one of the Indian cities the carrier operates to.

Al-Qubbi informed guests that India is the largest country on the Saudia route map in terms of number of destinations. Altogether Saudia flies to eight stations in India: Mumbai, Delhi, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Trivandrum and Kochi.

Al-Qubbi explained that the number of passengers, total flights and seat capacity between Saudi Arabia and India is witnessing exponential growth. The average weekly flights to India is currently at (134) flights (in both directions Saudia flew more than 3,200 flights between the Kingdom and the Republic of India). – TradeArabia News Service
