LONDON – SAL Saudi Logistics Services and Menzies Aviation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a comprehensive study on delivering best in class passenger handling services for low-cost carriers at Saudi Arabia airports.

Under the MoU, Menzies Aviation and SAL Saudi Logistics Services will work together to explore the potential of providing passenger handling services for low-cost carriers at Saudi’s airports.

 They aim to implement industry best practice to improve passenger services, enhance the efficiency of operations, and support the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 targets associated with upgrading and developing airport services to be on par with the world’s leading and most advanced international airports.

Leading logistics services


SAL Saudi Logistics Services is the market leading air cargo handler in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and recently obtained a license to provide passenger handling services in Saudi airports from the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA).

Menzies Aviation is the world’s largest aviation services company with operations at more than 250 airports in 58 countries. It provides ground services, fuel services and air cargo services.

Emphasizing the importance of the agreement with Menzies, Mr. Faisal AlBedah, Managing Director and CEO of SAL Saudi Logistics Services, stated: “This MoU will enable SAL to utilize Menzies’ global capabilities and expertise.”

“It is also aligned with our ambitious vision to become the logistics champion for a globally connected Saudi Arabia.”

“We believe the MoU will result in significant improvements in Saudi’s airport services, increasing capacity and enhancing the customer experience and satisfaction, in line with the highest international safety and security standards.”

“Our approach complements the National Transport and Logistics Strategy, in parallel with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 towards welcoming 330 million travelers by 2030,” AlBedah explained.

“This will be achieved by offering cutting-edge innovation, integrated logistics services in airports and building a wide network linking domestic airports, seaports and land transport hubs to ensure the ongoing development of this vital sector.”

Potential for Saudi airports


Philipp Joeinig, CEO, Menzies Aviation, said: “This collaboration has huge potential not only for our businesses, but for the country’s aviation industry more broadly as the Saudi 2030 vision aims to increase passenger numbers significantly by the end of this decade.”

“The agreement strengthens our position and relationships in the Middle East, which is a key market for Menzies as we look to accelerate our growth and bring the highest standards of aviation services to countries all over the world.”

A leading national provider offering end-to-end logistics services, SAL Saudi Logistics Services key areas of expertise include cargo handling for numerous airlines operating in Saudi airports.

This aligns with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, which gives special attention to this vital sector and prioritizes the Kingdom’s transformation into a global logistics hub and an international center for cargo and shipping services.
