Gulf Air signs up with SAL for cargo handling in Saudi Arabia

Handling and logistics company SAL has signed an agreement with Gulf Air to provide ground handling solutions to their fleet at all of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) main airports.

The Saudi company said that the seven-year agreement is “another step towards enhancing the expansion plans and strategic relations with diverse airlines with high cargo operational capacity”.

SAL chief executive Hesham Alhussayen highlighted the role SAL plays in facilitating cargo movement at all main airports – it provides both handling facilities and logistics services.

The two companies have been working together in the recent past and in 2020, SAL handled a total of 900,000 kg for Gulf Air in all main airports in KSA.

The deal is the second handling contract confirmed by Gulf Air today – the airline also signed a deal with Gerry’s dnata in Pakistan.
