Commenting on Saudia Cargo’s latest accolade, the cargo airline’s CEO Teddy Zebitz, said, “We see our role at Saudia Cargo evolving from facilitating trade, to keeping humanity safe. It was a matter of being switched on and fully alert to ensure the supply chains hold intact against this global threat to humanity.”


“Those shipments, which mainly involved food and medical supplies like masks, PPE, ventilators, PCR test kits, medicines, among other medical goods, were successfully transported from different destinations globally through our dedicated Saudia Cargo’s team and partners —pilots, crew, cargo specialists, people on the ground. They are undoubtedly the heroes of our time.”
