flyadeal announces National Day fare promotion

flyadeal, the Kingdom’s new low fare airline, opened for sale with a launch promotion for its first flight on Saudi National Day. All seats on the two special flights that will be operated on Saturday were being offered for sale at SR48 ($12) one-way.
The sale promotion continues with additional fares on double-daily flights between Jeddah and Riyadh from Sunday until midnight on Sept. 30 with the travel period running until Oct. 31. Bookings can be made only via the flyadeal official website (flyadeal.com) or the all-female Customer Engagement Center (CEC) on 920000212.
The website follows a simple design with white space and vibrant colors, informational videos about flyadeal and instructions on how to book a fare, choose a seat or pre-order a meal. The airline said it continues to communicate its “only pay for what you need” message, staying consistent with its social media campaign of recent months. By offering choices and a good price, flyadeal said it is looking to address the demands of budget conscious travelers in Saudi Arabia.
The website revealed two product features that will be a talking point with flyadeal customers. The first is a free 10 kg cabin bag allowance which offers customers in the Kingdom the most generous carry-on allowance on an economy class ticket. The second was a trial of Ladies Only rows that are reserved for female customers seeking the comfort of a dedicated space.
CEO of flyadeal Con Korfiatis said: “This is a very special time for the Kingdom and we are proud to commence flying on this auspicious day. We therefore chose to mark the day with a very special fare and let the low fare flyadeal experience speak for itself. Join us.”
He added: “Visit our website or call our Customer Engagement Center. Be smart and fly for less with flyadeal.”

Saudi teams shine in Schneider Electric’s competition

Schneider Electric, a global leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation operating in more than 100 countries, has announced the qualification of four teams from Saudi Arabia out of 10 teams from the Middle East and Africa for the final round of the 2018 Go Green in the City competition, which brings together college students from all corners of the world.
Marketing Excellence Director of the Middle East and Africa at Schneider Electric, Nora Al-Shiha, said that the achievement of the qualified teams from Saudi Arabia and the Middle East represents an advancement in the perceptions of college graduates toward environmental sustainability. She said it confirms the interactive ability of female Saudi graduates to work in teams that care about environmental safety and implement creative projects that promote the value of green initiatives in developed communities.
Al-Shiha noted that the participation of the Saudi teams is consistent with Schneider Electric’s objectives, as the Go Green in the City competition supports the use of creative ideas and the utilization of human resources to find solutions for smart cities and the economics of a green, sustainable environment.
According to Al-Shiha, the qualified teams will acquire training, guidance and early career counseling, which will shed light on young national talents and give them the opportunity to prove their abilities. The competition will grant the winners a variety of sponsorship, networking, and travel prospects, as well as job opportunities at Schneider Electric.
She added that in its eighth year, the global competition has become a major event for many educational institutions and college students around the world. Go Green in the City comes within the framework of Schneider Electric’s efforts to raise the levels of innovation and creativity among young men and women around the world, revolutionize new methods for handling different challenges, and reach solutions that make our planet more vital and sustainable.
The competition also aims to activate Schneider Electric’s contribution to the development boom sought by the Kingdom’s leadership, in addition to fulfilling the objectives of the National Transformation Program in accordance with the ambitious Vision 2030.
Raghad Al-Sulami, who is a member of the “Touk” team, praised Schneider Electric for giving her the chance to become a part of this global event, and for encouraging the four teams to showcase their creative skills. She pointed out that the chance of her team winning the grand prize is promising as they currently hold second place in the Middle East and North Africa.
Schneider Electric’s approach is in line with the aspirations of the Kingdom’s leadership to support Saudi women and empower them in all fields. The Saudi woman has become an active component alongside the Saudi man, now contributing to all types of businesses and events in the Kingdom.
