American Express Saudi Arabia chief marketing officer, Khalid Mohammad Kayal added: “Consolidating our strategic partnership with Saudia for the benefit of our Card members is an important priority.

“The relationship with Saudia started with the successful AlFursan American Express co-brand credit card and, through signing our new agreement, all American Express Saudi Arabia card members will be able to access the benefits of our strategic partnership and redeem their Memberships Rewards points toward AlFursan miles.”
