Saudi Arabian Airlines ( SAA ) is planning to build the largest and most advanced green IT park at King Abdullah Economic City, north of Jeddah, announced Muhammed Ali Al-Bakri, vice president for information technology, Saudi Arabian Airlines.
He said the SR20 billion project will be located on a 10,000 square meter plot of land in the economic city's industrial valley, with onsite research, development and data centers to serve the airline and other tenants at the forthcoming business hub.
Various housing options have been earmarked for the estimated 1800 employee families that will be relocated once the building is operational, said Al-Bakri.
