They are adding MAD very soon also.

SV knows they need to keep up with "the joneses" = EK, EY, and QR.

Yes, but I only saw MAD when i visited their website. So there is something new here as well.

And I really wonder what's the market between Saudi and MAD? Can't be that much. Does SV really market RUH and JED as connecting points internationally like EK, EY, and QR do? I never really thought so....
