SAUDIA WINS TWO AWARDS AT ‘ARABIAN TRAVEL MARKET’ EVENT IN DUBAI
SAUDIA Wins ‘People’s Choice Award’ and ‘Best Stand Personnel’ for its Exhibition Stand at the Middle East’s Largest Travel Trade Show
Dubai, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA), picked up two awards at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) – the Middle East’s largest travel trade event.
The only airline in the running for awards at this year’s ATM, SAUDIA displayed a brand new stand with innovative features and products, which the independent judging panel selected for ‘Best Stand Personnel.’
SAUDIA also won the ‘People’s Choice Award’, based on votes by attendees and visitors to the stand.
The independent panel from the Arabian Travel Market exhibition organizers outlined various elements which made SAUDIA stand out, including: overall product knowledge, polite and well-represented, enthusiastic and attentive; good interactivity with guests and cohesion with all team members.
This year was the 25th edition of the ATM, which took place from 22 – 25 April at the Dubai International Convention Center. The four day exhibition was attended by dignitaries, members of the travel trade and media.
SAUDIA welcomed guests from all over the world at its exhibition stand, showcasing new products and services on display, as well as demonstrations from the onboard crew. The service experienced at the SAUDIA stand is highly reflective of the cabin crew team service onboard, which demonstrates the airline’s natural, warm and genuine hospitality.
The ‘Best Stand Personnel’ award was presented by Mr. Jonathan Hull, Portfolio Head of Sales for Reed Travel Exhibitions to SAUDIA Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, Dr. Fahad Aljarboa. A congratulatory event was held, including team members from the airline.
The airline’s stand featured the latest amenities, interactive experiences and aircraft seats in all three classes – Economy, Business and its ‘First Suite’ on display at the show, as well as information about the airline’s new upcoming routes and the new Jeddah airport terminal at King Abdulaziz International Airport.
Last year at the Paris Air Show, the airline was named ‘World’s Most Improved Airline 2017’. SAUDIA currently flies to 89 destinations across four continents with a fleet of 147 aircraft.
