Route Exchange, the online platform for air service development, is delighted to announce the commencement of a Request for Proposal (RFP) from Saudia who are using the facility to support their network growth.
The national airline of Saudi Arabia, based at Jeddah-King Abdulaziz International
Airport, operates domestic and international scheduled flights to over 70 destinations in
the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
Declan Maguire, Business Development Manager for Route Exchange stated: "The Saudia
Request for Proposals represents an excellent opportunity for airports worldwide to pitch
their route proposals directly to the planning team of a highly successful Middle Eastern
carrier. Saudia are prepared to listen to any airport who can demonstrate strong demand
between their market and their Jeddah and Riyadh bases. Saudia have specific intelligence
requests of airports which are detailed in the full Request for Proposals (RFP) document".
Once airports have met the terms of the Prequalifying Questionnaire (PQQ), they will
then be sent the formal RFP where they can complete a pre-defined data requirements and a
proposal document. Saudia will then analyse the submissions before scheduling meetings
with potential new airport partners at World Routes, The 18th World Route Development
Forum which will take place 29 September - 2 October this year in Abu Dhabi, United Arab
