CEO at Najm Dr. Mohammad Al Suliman commended the Kingdom’s astute leadership and its directives to launch the Umrah season following a successful Hajj season concluded two weeks ago without any recorded accidents, owing to the diligent efforts enacted to ensure a smooth and comfortable journey for pilgrims, in addition to mandating the highest preventive measures against COVID-19, which will continue throughout the upcoming Umrah season.

Al Suliman also expressed Najm’s delight to be taking part in the Hajj and Umrah seasons, and reiterated the readiness of its fleet of motorcycles and vehicles deployed to serve pilgrims around the clock, as also highlighted its smart applications developed to facilitate a safe and convenient Umrah pilgrimage while combating the spread of new COVID-19 variants emerging and causing a spike in cases around the world.
