Welcome onboard SV590
Take the lead with SAUDIA and let’s save the planet
Dear planets savers,
Thank you for being a valuable part of our commitment to the environment.
Climate change is the greatest challenge facing our planet and air travel produces millions of metric tons of carbon dioxide each year (about 3% of all global carbon dioxide emissions). It is one of the fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gases.
SAUDIA continually strives to continually improve our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods. We are committed to becoming an industry leader in sustainability and to minimize the environmental impact of our operations, in the air, on the ground and throughout our entire supply chain.
As part of this commitment, SAUDIA has selected SV590 from Jeddah to Dubai on 8th October 2022 to pilot Green Points, a sustainability initiative that will help us to minimize our environmental footprint and produce much fewer emissions.
“ If 200 passengers on a 10-hour flight reduce their weight by 7 kg each, they would stop the production of 7200 kg of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere.”
Let's Get Involved
Greens Points is a bold but straightforward program that will reward you, dear Guest, for making decisions that help us reduce waste of food, fuel and materials.
You will receive Green Points for pre-selecting your meal before travel from a menu that is designed to be an Eco-friendly experience.
In partnership with the Red Sea Farms, your menu showcases high-quality organic vegetables, grown with reduced carbon and water footprints.
A generous allocation of Green Points will be given for choosing to travel with less luggage, as this contributes significantly toward fuel efficiency.
You can also earn Green Points by opting out of receiving an amenity kit, as a further contribution to cutting waste and weight.
Dear Valued Guest, as valued stakeholders of this initiative, your participation in Greens Points helps in reducing waste and carbon emissions - an important consideration for us all.
"Together we can make a difference and tread a greener footprint"
