flynas Recognized for Sponsoring Spinal Cord Injury Conference 2014

 Riyadh – March 6 – flynas, Saudi Arabia’s national carrier sponsored the Spinal Cord Injury Conference 2014 organized by Sultan bin Abdulaziz Humanitarian City in cooperation with the Miami Project held from March 4-5 under the patronage of HRH Prince Khaled bin Sultan, Head of the Board of Trustees of Sultan bin Abdulaziz Foundation.  The Conference addressed key topics including spinal cord surgery and the innovative treatment of solutions.

 The sponsorship of this conference stems from its continuous support of scientific research projects which contribute to advancing treatment while at the same time supporting the Saudi community with humanitarian programs.

 flynas was recognized amongst the participants of the conference in the opening ceremony patronized by HRH Prince Khaled bin Sultan where he recognized Mr. Sulaiman bin Abdullah Al Hamdan, CEO of NAS Holding.

 NAS Holding CEO explained that supporting this conference is part and parcel of flynas’s corporate social responsibility programs as a national carrier that is committed to take part in supporting the community.  This includes a diverse support base to cover charity organizations, awareness campaigns, or scientific programs which contribute in advancing the Kingdom from an academic or treatment perspective which in turn will reflect positively on the community.

 flynas has also a distinctive role in various community service programs by adopting the sustainable community partnership concept where the Company supported SANAD Children’s Charity Organization by providing special initiatives including free tickets for the children and reduced tickets for their families. In addition to a partnership with the Disabled Children’s Association which will be announced soon.
