SAA privatization committee meets

The privatization committee for Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAA) has held its first meeting under the chairmanship of Director-General Dr. Khalid bin Abdullah bin Bakr. It reviewed the master plan for the project, and SAA's status as the largest carrier in the region of the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia. The airline had record high passenger loads last year and this summer, and is making gains in the transport of pilgrims in spite of competition.
