Al-Jasser also underscored Al-Molhem's contributions that have helped Saudia achieve four-star airline status and win several international awards.

'I had followed the development programs at Saudia when I was a member of its board of directors and I had taken note that all these programs have been transformed into achievements as a result of Prince Fahd's directives and the efforts of Al-Molhem the team of executives and other employees' said Al-Jasser who took charge after Eid Al-Fitr.

Earlier Abdul Aziz Al-Hazmi CEO of Saudi Airlines Company gave a presentation highlighting Al-Molhem's achievements. 'The first thing he did after becoming the director-general was form executive and field working teams in all sectors to implement the organization's strategic plans' he said.
