Saudi Airline celebrated its newly opened office in Kano on Monday as it also launched a new aircraft for full-service operation.
Interacting with journalists during the opening ceremony yesterday, Consul General to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Kano, Kahlil Ahmed Admawi, said though Saudi Airline has been in existence in Kano for many decades as the first branch was opened in the state in 1982, the new development was to improve access to business, tourism and religious opportunities to Nigerians and Africans in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
According to him, Saudi Airlines has been serving the people of the state by offering thorough guidance to the populace willing to visit Saudi Arabia for business, religious and tourism purposes.
“Today, we are pleased with the opening of the new Saudi Airline and the new aircraft. It is the right place to guide those wishing to visit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and enjoy spending comfortable times and tourism in addition to recreational, cultural and health tourism,” Daily Trust quoted Admawi saying.
Also speaking, the President of the Coalition of Northern States Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (CONSCCIMA), Alhaji Dalhatu Abubakar, said the coming back of Saudi Airlines is a welcome development which in return will enhance the economic growth and development of not only Kano State or Nigeria in particular but the entire West African sub-region in general.
On his part, the Country Manager of the Saudi Airline in Sudan and Nigeria, Engr. Emad Assubhi appreciated the Kano community for the good business relationship and hinted at plans to open another branch in Abuja.
