SAA announces improved services to Lebanon

Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAA) has announced two moves to improve services to Lebanon. Fares on

pilgrims' flights from Beirut during this Hajj season will be reduced, in coordination with Lebanon's

Middle East Airlines (MEA); and SAA plans next summer to increase to nine the number of regular

weekly flights between the two countries, with additional flights for Saudi tourists and for Lebanese and

Saudi businessmen to be arranged between SAA and MEA.

These announcements were made today at the opening of SAA's new ticket offices and cargo facilities at

Beirut's international airport by Director-General Dr. Khalid Bin Abdullah Bakr.
