Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) and American Express Saudi Arabia have launched a new miles redemption partnership.

It enables American Express Saudi Arabia card members to transfer two Membership Rewards points for one Al Fursan mile.

This builds on the existing partnership whereby the Al Fursan American Express co-branded credit card allows American Express Saudi Arabia card members to earn miles directly using the card.

SAUDIA currently flies to 95 destinations across four continents. The airline recently announced the addition of 10 new international routes: Bangkok, Thailand; Barcelona and Malaga, Spain; Marrakech, Morocco; Mykonos, Greece; Moscow, Russia; Beijing, China; Seoul, South Korea; Entebbe, Uganda; Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and Chicago, Illinois in the United States of America.
