National Handling Services

National Handling Services (NHS) was the pre-eminent Ground Service Provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. NHS was the market leader not only in terms of market share with 80% of ground handling services for foreign carriers, but also in terms of its commitment to safety, customer orientation and service quality within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. When the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia implemented its strategic vision for ground support services, NHS merged its ground handling operations with Saudi Arabian Airlines Ground Services and Attar Ground Services to establish the Saudi Ground Services Co.
