Saudia Private Aviation (SPA), a subsidiary of Saudia Group and a leading provider of luxury aviation and ground handling services, has announced that it has signed an MoU with a Saudi national company LPort, which provides smart logistical solutions and services to travelers.
This agreement paves the way for further cooperation between both companies, to develop services that aim to enhance guest experience, by shortening the time and effort that goes into the boarding procedures for flights. The agreement was signed by Dr. Fahad Aljarboa, CEO of SPA and Mr. Qassem Alshaikh, Board Director of Lport, during the first day of the Middle East and North Africa Private Aviation Exhibition (MEBAA) which is taking place in Dubai, UAE, this week.
The agreement will provide mutual benefits to both companies as they benefit from the other’s experience in their respective fields by improving and developing services provided to guests. In addition, SPA and LPort will be looking to implement automated systems within airport service facilities and electronic services, which will further contribute to the ongoing fast-paced development of the aviation sector in Saudi Arabia. The DCS service, which handles guest boarding control systems by scanning guests’ passports, stands out as an example of one service which will save boarding time for guests on private flights.
Dr. Fahad Aljarboa said: “At SPA, we prioritize the continuous development of our service systems, which is achieved by partnering with companies that expand our expertise and focusing on creativity and innovation in outputs. The partnership with LPort will help us explore the latest technology solutions to enhance the aviation sector and contribute to improving the guest experience in all service locations and throughout their travel journey.”
