Saudia to increase capacity to LA for holiday season

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) will add new capacity on the Los Angeles route with two new flights from Riyadh starting Dec. 1 until the end of January 2018.
Currently, a thrice-weekly service operates on the Riyadh-Jeddah-Los Angeles route. The additional capacity will take the service up to five times per week, providing increased seat availability for students, families and holidaymakers traveling between the two cities. On the return course, three flights will operate the Los Angeles-Jeddah-Riyadh route, with two flights per week nonstop to Riyadh.
The route is operated with a Boeing 777-300ER in a tri-class configuration featuring the new Saudia first-suites (12 suites) and 36 seats in business class — both premium seating arrangements are in a 1-2-1 layout providing every seat with aisle access. In economy class, 242 seats are available.
Saudia flights to the US also feature WiFi access and a wide range of entertainment options including more than 3,500 hours of movies, programs, games and more.
The airline said the flights are open for purchase and can be booked on the Saudia mobile app, through a travel agent, or its website.

Emaar to build ME’s largest Chinatown in Dubai

Emaar has announced a landmark development that is expected to further strengthen UAE-China relations, coinciding with the historic visit of President Xi Jinping of China to the UAE.
To honor Chinese expatriates in the UAE and further bolster business ties with China, Emaar will develop the Middle East’s largest Chinatown within the retail district of Dubai Creek Harbor, its six-square-kilometer mega-development, only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the Burj Khalifa.
“The retail precinct will occupy a central location within Dubai Creek Harbor — a destination which will be home to the world’s new icon, Dubai Creek Tower, and encompass vibrant lifestyle elements. Set by the Dubai Creek waterway, elegantly designed homes in Dubai Creek Harbor will offer spectacular views of the city’s dramatic skyline, the waterfront and the Ras Al-Khor Wildlife Sanctuary — home to over 450 animal species and migratory birds, including pink flamingos,” Emaar said in a press release.
