One of the leading logistics service providers, Saudi Logistics Services, or SAL recently went in to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Bangalore-based, independent Aviation Services specialist, Menzies Aviation to deliver the best-in-class passenger handling services.
Speaking about the agreement with Menzies, Mr. Faisal AlBedah, Managing Director and CEO, SAL Saudi Logistics Services, said “This MoU will enable SAL to utilize Menzies’ global capabilities and expertise. It is also aligned with our ambitious vision to become the logistics champion for a globally connected Saudi Arabia. We believe the MoU will significantly improve Saudi airport services, increasing capacity and enhancing customer experience and satisfaction, in line with the highest international safety and security standards.”
He further added, “Our approach complements the National Transport and Logistics Strategy, in parallel with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 towards welcoming 330 million travelers by 2030. This will be achieved by offering cutting-edge innovation, integrated logistics services in airports and building a wide network linking domestic airports, seaports, and land transport hubs to ensure the ongoing development of this vital sector and increase its contribution to the Saudi GDP, as well as driving the national economy in light of the Kingdom’s ambitious vision.”
Furthermore, Philipp Joeinig, CEO, Menzies Aviation, said: “This collaboration has huge potential not only for our businesses but for the country’s aviation industry more broadly as the Saudi 2030 vision aims to increase passenger numbers significantly by the end of this decade. The agreement strengthens our position and relationships in the Middle East, a key market for Menzies as we look to accelerate our growth and bring the highest standards of aviation services to countries worldwide. I would like to thank Mr. AlBedah and the team at SAL for the opportunity to work together and explore how we can help unlock the potential of Saudi airports.”
