Saudia to set new records
Jeddah, 17 December 2000
Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) is expected to hit new records for passengers and pilgrims airlifted by the end of 2000 and during the forthcoming Hajj season respectively, it was reported here today.

Announcing that Saudia would hold its annual board meeting in the Holy City of Makkah Tuesday under the Chairmanship of Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, Second Deputy Premier, Minister of Defense and Aviation and Inspector General who is also chairman of Saudia board, the Director General of Saudi Arabia's national carrier Dr. Khalid bin Baker said in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency that the meeting would review the performance of Saudia over the past year, operations to lift Umrah worshippers, hajj plan, new budget and a number of important issues.

He said Saudia is expected to hit new records in airlifting pilgrims this year:

“The number of pilgrims who will choose Saudia on their hajj tour is expected to exceed 746 thousand on more than 3166 flights,” bin Baker was quoted as saying, adding that, in general, an unprecedented 13.5 million passengers are expected to have used Saudia by the end of 2000.

He attributed this unparalleled success to the prudent instructions and attention of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz, his Crown Prince and Second Deputy Premier to Saudia operations.

Bin Baker also praised the leadership of Prince Fahd bin Abdullah, Assistant Minister of Defense and Aviation for Civil Aviation.
