PrivatAir Training for Excellence in Saudi Arabia

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 5th March, 2013 – Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2013 was the opportunity for two companies geared towards the highest standards in safety and service in the skies to join forces. PrivatAir are proud to announce the signing of a contract with Saudia Private Aviation (SPA) that will encompass training SPA’s existing cabin crew as well as coaching in specific areas of on-board service. 

These two leading companies in private aviation will benefit from their shared values and goals - to bestow excellence and to meet the expectations of elite customers, by providing exceptional personal care and fully customized services during every step of the journey. The first group of SPA’s 20 cabin crew are scheduled to commence their VVIP service training with PrivatAir in early April 2013, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Saudia Private Aviation aims to support the development of the national economy of Saudi Arabia by contributing to the growth of the local private aviation infrastructure, whilst integrating the highest international standards for maintenance and safety. Certified by the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) of Saudi Arabia and in full compliance with the highest standards from IATA and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), SPA are already ahead of the game. The contract with PrivatAir, who have a training department specialized in providing courses tailored to suit both the exacting needs of private aviation passengers as well as the individual culture of the client organisation, will ensure SPA get the utmost out of their crew and achieve the “WOW” factor that is crucial in this line of business. 

Victor Grove, Senior Vice President Selection, Training and Customer Service for PrivatAir is excited about this chance to extend the company’s market reach: “Following on from the Royal Flight of Oman, we now have an opportunity to demonstrate our level of service in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”. 

SPA’s company director general, Khalid Abdullah Almolhem, is clear in his goals: “It is our prime objective to continually improve our services so that we always remain ahead with our competitors and exceed our clients’ expectations, in order to win their absolute loyalty. Following the tradition of Saudi Arabian Airlines, we are determined to build on our commitments by training our staff and crew to the apex of excellence.” The contract with PrivatAir is in place to help achieve this vision.
