Saudi Arabia, May 23, 2018:  Dammam Airports Company (DACO) has awarded a 10-year contract to Serco for the provision of fire and rescue services at Dammam’s King Fahd International Airport (KFIA), the first Saudi airport to leverage an international service provider’s expertise in firefighting systems.

By combining Serco’s expertise as a globally recognised fire and rescue service provider with Dammam Airports Company’s ambition, our objective is to serve as one of the effective enablers in the transformation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s aviation sector in line with Vision 2030. The collaboration will also help us contribute to the growth of the Eastern Region’s economy through the development of an efficient and effective gateway for passengers and cargo.”
