Six years after Yasmeen Al-Maimani obtained her aviation licence from the Saudi Civil Aviation authority, she finally hot appointed as the first female pilot in commercial airlines in Saudi Arabia. 

Al-Maimani got her qualifications in Jordan and then spent 300 hours of flying practice in the US where she exchanged her American license with a Saudi one in 2013.

Following this, Al-Maimani waited for a very long time with no return in the professional world and just last week the Saudi Arabian airline Nesma Airways granted the female aviator the permit, marking a major milestone in aviation history.

Al-Maimani posted a photo of herself in action on Instagram, expressing her gratitude and enthusiasm for achieving her dream.

She posted a photo of herself in the cockpit and quoted the picture saying, “thank God, I achieved my dream today. Released as First Officer.” 

 

Saudi’s princess and ambassador to the United States Reema bint Bandar Al Saud tweeted the news on Friday.

AlUla, one of the Kingdom’s most breathtaking places, is getting a one of a kind resort that is designed by the exceptional French architect Jean Nouvel, and the new concept designs for the resort have been revealed today!

The designs show a deeper look at the architect’s daring vision for AlUla, the cultural oasis in north-west Arabia.

Nouvel emphasized the significance of preserving such a unique landscape: “AlUla is a museum. Every wadi and escarpment, every stretch of sand and rocky outline, every geological and archeological site deserves the greatest consideration. It’s vital we keep all its distinctiveness and conserve its attractiveness, which largely rests on its remote and occasionally archaic character. We have to safeguard a little mystery as well as the promise of discoveries to come.”

Nouvel made sure to blend AlUla’s landscape and ancient heritage with the modern architectural ideas. “AlUla deserves to acquire a degree of modernity,” he suggests. “Envisioning the future is a never-ending obligation that requires us to be fully alive to places in the present as well as conjuring up the past.”

“Our project should not jeopardize what humanity and time have consecrated,” emphasizes Nouvel, “Our project is celebrating the Nabateans spirit without caricaturing it. This creation genuinely becomes a cultural act.

Amr AlMadani, CEO of RCU, said: “These concepts, which showcase Jean Nouvel’s masterly innovation in architecture, underscore our commitment to developing AlUla as a global tourism destination without compromising the history, heritage, and landscape of AlUla. We are a destination built by artists. Sharaan by Jean Nouvel will build on that legacy to become a timeless landscape-architecture that will last forever – a gift to the world.”

We can’t wait to see the end result of such a magnificent project!
