RIYADH – Saudi Arabia’s national airline plans to accommodate traveler keeping in view the gender segregation as male do not like other males sit next to their female family members, PakistanTribe received international media reports.
International media sources reported that Saudi Arabian international air line received dozens of complaints about the intermingling and mix seating of female and male especially when people refused the sitting plan on the reason that they do not like other males to sit next to their female family members.
Airline company Saudia will order its staff to keep men and women separated on board, unless they are close relatives, the Emirates247 news website reported.
Saudi assistant manager for marketing Abdul Rahman Al Fahd said “There are solutions to this problem…we will soon enforce rules that will satisfy all passengers.”
According to Saudi daily Ajel “There are solutions to this problem,” said Abdul Rahman Al Fahd, the assistant manager of national carrier Saudia. “We will soon enforce rules that will satisfy all passengers.”
In addition there are no female Saudi flight attendants on Saudi Arabia’s national carrier. The women who have been employed as flight attendants on Saudia are generally from Morocco and Great Britian and other countries.
In 2010 Saudia surprisingly announced it was recruiting women as sales staff.
“We will employ women as ticket sales ladies in all parts of the Kingdom from next year,” Saudi Airlines passenger services director, Saad Al Seuleiman, said then in a statement to the local Saudi media.
However he said “They will be deployed in places assigned specially for them away from the main terminals…they will work in places confined only to women…the policy of Saudi Airlines is clear in not allowing women to mix with men.”
