Abu Dhabi – MENA Herald:  Al Fahim Group, one of the most established family businesses in the region, has today announced the signing of a long-term agreement with Etihad Airways, to provide exclusive deals on airline tickets to employees working in the group and its subsidiaries.

Representing Etihad Airways were Haitham Al Subaihi, Vice President UAE Sales, and Joseph Chamoun, General Manager Sales – Abu Dhabi & Al Ain, as well as members of the sales and marketing management teams. From Al Fahim Group, Mr. Mohammed Abdulla Al Fahim, General Manager of Products & Services Division, and Mr. Moath Hussein, Chief Support Services Officer of Al Fahim Group, including line-managers and Safar Travel & Tourism’s management were present.

At the signing ceremony, Mr. Moath Hussein, Chief Support Services Officer (CSSO), praised, “We are proud to be partnering with the esteemed Etihad Airways. Besides enabling Al Fahim Group to provide value-added benefits to employees, this mutually beneficial tie-up has further strengthened our strong relationship with the UAE’s flag carrier. We are looking forward to working more closely for new, future opportunities.”

Under the agreement, Al Fahim Group employees and its families will receive unique holiday packages, opportunity to join the airline’s award-winning frequent flyer programme – Etihad Guest, and access to special offers during the year on the global network of Etihad Airways and its Etihad Airways Partner airlines.

Mr. Mohammed Abdulla Al Fahim, Products & Services General Manager in Al Fahim Group, said, “We have been working with Etihad Airways for many years, and we are delighted to be extending their outstanding services to our valuable employees. With this agreement, we have raised the bar higher and given staff even more value for their money with one of the world’s leading five-star airlines.”

Haitham Al Subaihi, Etihad Airways’ Vice President UAE Sales, said: “As the national airline of the UAE, we have a responsibility to support locally-driven enterprises such as Al Fahim Group, with whom we have shared a long-term strategic partnership.  This reinvigorated deal will enhance our partnership further by providing customised benefits to suit the travel needs of their employees across the region, which we are very proud of.”

Continuing to abide by the core values embedded in the organization by the late founder, Abdul Jalil Al Fahim (mercy be upon him), Al Fahim Group is steadfastly advancing to a new phase. A phase which genuinely focuses on ‘people’; be it, customers and their experiences with the brands under the Al Fahim Group umbrella, or the workforce and how they engage with the group.
