Abdul Latif Jameel Motors launches Ramadan Jameel campaign

Abdul Latif Jameel Motors, the authorized distributor of Toyota vehicles in Saudi Arabia, has launched Ramadan Jameel campaign at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Jeddah. The campaign, which is ongoing throughout the holy month, aims to expand the company’s presence in the Saudi market and to connect it to the families whose trust Abdul Latif Jameel Motors has long enjoyed.
The campaign provides visitors the opportunity to learn about the latest Toyota models; the Fortuner, the Land Cruiser, and the Prius, the world’s best-selling hybrid car. Visitors will be allowed to test drive the vehicles themselves under the supervision of a specialized team, all in a family-friendly Ramadan ambience. The campaign’s focus will be on the ease of driving, advanced technology, smooth and fast driver response time, and the safety and security features of each model. Each model’s unique features will also be discussed, such as the hybrid propulsion system in the Prius, as well as the rich environmental and economical features available in this innovative vehicle.
In addition to the test drive, the company allocated a corner for fun and entertainment that includes a special “Ramadan Jameel” photo booth. The booth allows visitors to take commemorative photos and post them on social media websites in order to win in the “Ramadan Jameel” competition, in which every three days a lucky winner will receive SR10,000.
The event also featured coloring and paper lantern making activities, giving the children a feel of the joyous atmosphere of the holy month.
The renowned relationship between Toyota and Abdul Latif Jameel Motors was established more than half a century ago, and has developed into one of the most remarkable automotive forces in the Kingdom. Abdul Latif Jameel Motors is one of the largest independent, certified Toyota dealers in the world. Under its policy of “putting the guest first” and its commitment to achieving excellence in all areas of expertise, Abdul Latif Jameel Motors supports the widespread use of Toyota vehicles in the Saudi market through an extensive network of sales and maintenance centers that are strategically located around the Kingdom and are designed to provide peace of mind for the company’s guests, wherever they may be.

  • All 141 passengers and 10 crew members onboard were evacuated safely, and were cared for by the airline’s ground operations team and airport personnel.
Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia), the national flag carrier of the Kingdom, greeted passengers returning to Dhaka following a brief stay in Jeddah due to an irregular occurrence on one of its aircraft.
Flight SV3818 operating from Madinah to Dhaka on Monday diverted to Jeddah for an emergency landing due to nose gear malfunction, which became apparent mid-flight. The aircraft was an Airbus A330-200, wet-leased to Saudia.
All 141 passengers and 10 crew members onboard were evacuated safely, and were cared for by the airline’s ground operations team and airport personnel.
Upon concluding all safety and health checks, the passengers were cleared to fly the next day. The Saudia ground operations team conducted all formalities and clearances in order for the guests to fly to Dhaka at 7:30 p.m. Jeddah local time on Tuesday.
Greeting the guests at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah prior to departure was Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines, Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser, along with representatives from the airline, civil aviation authority and crew.
“Saudia thanks the onboard crew, General Authority of Civil Aviation, and King Abdul Aziz International Airport control for providing their cohesive, full support and cooperation during the event,” the airline said in a statement.
The flight arrived in Dhaka at 4:48 a.m. Dhaka time on Wednesday where they were met by the Saudia country manager and the station staff.
Currently in its 73rd year of operations, Saudia is a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO).
The airline currently flies to 90 destinations across four continents with a fleet of 147 narrow and widebody aircraft.
At the 2017 Skytrax Awards held at the Paris Air Show, Saudia was awarded the “World’s Most Improved Airline” of the year.
