June 9 - Eighty percent of Saudis use highways for domestic travel, said Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA). Prince Salman was speaking at the re-launch of Saudi Automotive Services Company (SASCO) service stations at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh.
The Minister of Transport Jabara Al-Seraisry, Chief Executive Officer of Saudi Research and Marketing Group Azzam Al-Dakhil and SASCO, Chairman Ibrahim Al-Hudaithi, also attended the launching ceremony. "To promote domestic tourism we have to provide the best services to the local citizens, residents and tourists who make use of our trunk roads," said the prince.
Prince Salman explained that service stations are important because they are used by road travelers to freshen up, pointing out that their renovation and upkeep must be a priority. Meanwhile, Al-Hudaithi said SASCO plans to renovate its service centres to cater to the increasing demand of domestic travelers.
