Jeddah, kingdom of Saudi Arabia – Aljomaih Automotive Company, General Motors’ Premium Brands exclusive dealer in the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia supplied Abdulaziz Airport in Jeddah with 20 Cadillac DTS - a car that symbolizes luxury. VIP guests arriving to the airport will now be transported in Cadillac’s.

In addition to this delivery, the agreement is to include Cadillac DTS at King Fahed airport in Dammam and King Abdulaziz airport in Al Madinah Al-Munawarah throughout the remainder of 2007. This is part of a long term plan to include the Cadillac DTS as part of the VIP carriers in all the Kingdom’s airports.

“This deal is part of Jeddah airport’s aggressive expansion plans,” said Mazen Khashakgy, General Manager, King Abdulaziz airport. “We are extremely delighted at the signing of the partnership with Aljomaih Automotive Company. The Cadillac DTS was an obvious choice for us. It stands for luxury and sophistication, offering ultimate comfort, convenience and safety features and this is exactly what we want to offer our VIP guests.”

“From its Cadillac-signature styling to its power and refined ride characteristics, the DTS is a product of unwavering attention to detail building on the strengths and appeal of the Cadillac brand,” said Sheikh Ibrahim Aljomaih, Vice Chairman, Aljomiah Automotive Co. “We are extremely excited to see the eventual expansion of the Cadillac DTS presence across the Kingdom’s airport. It is by far the best choice for VIP service.”

Present at the handover that took place at the King Abdulaziz Airport in Jeddah were Mr. Mazen Khashakgy, General Manager of King Abdulaziz Airport, Sheikh Ibrahim Aljomaih, Vice Chairman of Aljomiah Automotive Co and Muneer Alhassan, Regional Fleet Manager of General Motors Middle East & Africa.

Cadillac has applied its contemporary design vocabulary to the DTS. At first glance, DTS strongly reflects the appeal of Cadillac’s trademark design with vertically shaped headlamps and tail lamps, and egg-crate grille. It has an architectural, linear exterior style and a look that separates it from the competition.

With its unique design and construction under the skin, the Cadillac DTS sophisticated, luxurious interior incorporates a clean, sculpted contemporary design featuring genuine materials, fabrics and low-gloss, tactile surfaces. Dual-firmness seats are engineered for comfort and support with an additional 25 mm (approximately 1 inch) of seat travel.

The DTS chassis combines performance and luxury capabilities to a degree never before reached on a full-size Cadillac sedan. Chassis tuning achieves a smooth, quiet, refined ride. The DTS features a front cradle design, with the engine mounted to the cradle, and the cradle mounted to the body rails.

Aljomaih Automotive Company, winner of the coveted GM Chairman Challenge Awards, highlights the importance of customer satisfaction and support by offering nothing less than outstanding premium services that are associated with Cadillac, such as superior after sales services and a comprehensive customer support network. The company continually strives to enhance the customer ownership experience and ensures the best levels of service are provided to all customers.

Great P.R. for Cadillac! This recognition exemplifies one of the many reasons the DTS-type-style of Cadillac must always be part of the model line-up (now let's see more than a MCE in its future, Cadillac)! :AH-HA_wink:

Not really surprised that the Saudi's like Cadillacs. Didn't a Saudi prince try to pay GM a huge amount of money for a production version of the Sixteen concept a few years back?
