Sabre Corporation has appointed Faisal Kayal as country manager for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Kayal will lead commercial operations and customer relations in three regions in the KSA, a key growth market for Sabre. He is tasked with optimising Sabre’s performance across the country, as well as identifying and executing strategic opportunities for Sabre’s agency customers to grow their business across the Kingdom.
Kayal joins Sabre from Saudi Arabian Airlines, where he served as vice president, network planning and revenue management. He began his 20-year career with the airline as an avionic technician and moved up to executive roles where he was closely involved in developing its long-term strategic vision.
“Sabre’s vision makes it the ideal technology partner for the dynamic travel industry. I am therefore excited to join the company at this time to help execute its ambitious strategy and support its growing base of customers in the region,” Kayal declared.
Kayal holds a master’s degree in Management Information System (MIS) from the American University in Washington.
