SACC’s origin was established in 1981, when Saudi Arabian Airlines established a dedicated unit in Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport to provide catering and support services to flights operated by Saudi Arabian and other airlines. In the years that followed the catering business expanded to other airports. It was entrusted in 1985 with the management of Saudi Arabian Airlines’ In Flight retail operation, SkySales, and in 2007 with oversight of the airline’s Al Fursan lounges. Having operated as an independent entity for some time, the business became a Limited Liability Company and was formally established as Saudi Airlines Catering Company (SACC) in 2008 as part of the airline’s privatization program. In 2011, SACC became a closed joint stock company and was listed in the stock market as a public joint stock in 2012. Saudi Arabian Airlines remain as the Company’s largest client and shareholder.
