We foresee Saudi Arabia as a key market in GCC and integral to our long-term growth strategy.'
One of the best ways to explore Europe is through train, giving passengers a change to enjoy the landscapes in detail. Passengers can reach their preferred destinations at convenient times, due to the flexible schedules, frequent departures, and arrivals. Also, travellers can optimise travel time by choosing to cover distance on night trains, arriving fresh at a new destination in the morning.
