Posted 1 May 2018 · Add Comment

Emirates is celebrating its 25th anniversary to Dammam. Originally operating two flights a week, Emirates now flies four times daily between Dammam and Emirates’ hub in Dubai. Since the start of the Dammam service in 1993, the airline has carried more than 3.8 million passengers.

 

Adil Al Ghaith, Senior Vice President, Gulf Middle East and Iran for Emirates Airline said: "We are embarking on a real milestone as we celebrate 25 years of service to Dammam.  The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a major market for Emirates and we take great pride in the role we play in providing global connectivity both for business and leisure passengers in Dammam and in the Eastern Province of KSA. We remain committed to this market and look forward to continue working closely with our industry partners in KSA to provide the best possible services to our customers.”

The Emirates team in Dammam has grown to over 14 employees, while over 66 Saudi Arabian nationals are employed across the Group.
