SAL launches expanded facility at Dammam airport
Saudi Arabian Logistics (SAL), a recently created subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Airlines, has inaugurated its new 37,800 sqm air cargo facility at the Dammam airport (DMM) in the presence of Abdullah Al-Zamil, chairman of the board of directors, Dammam Airports Company, and representatives of the airport's governmental authorities.
The state-of-the-art facility offers advanced logistic services and boasts space for dangerous goods, radioactive substances and cargo in-transit areas as well as designated areas for shipping live animals, heavy-weight shipments and a 24/7 customer service office.
The second station since the launch of SAL facility at Riyadh airport (RUH) last January - a third one is being constructed in Jeddah (JED) - will have an increased handling capacity of 130,000 t per year. (ah)
