DUBAI, 1 November 2017 - dnata Travel was presented with the prestigious ‘UAE’s Leading Travel Agency’ accolade for the fourth consecutive year at the World Travel Awards Middle East Gala Ceremony 2017, which took place in Dubai on 29 October. In addition to that, dnata Travel also picked up ‘Abu Dhabi’s Leading Travel Agency’ and ‘The Middle East’s Leading Business Travel Agency’.


The World Travel Awards Middle East were presented at a gala dinner in front of the region’s leading travel groups, and are voted on by travel and tourism professionals worldwide. They recognise commitment to service excellence which organisations receiving awards have demonstrated during the past twelve months.

“It’s particularly gratifying to know our hard work and dedication to our customers have been recognised by the World Travel Awards,” said Iain Andrew - Divisional Senior Vice President, dnata Travel. “What sets dnata Travel apart from the competition is exceptional customer service. Above all, dnata is committed to service quality — it’s the foundation of our success and is how we will continue to grow."

Each of dnata's three awards acknowledges a year of continued success. With over 45 retail locations in the Middle East, dnata Travel is perfectly placed as a travel provider for people looking for both business and leisure travel. Scooping the award for The Middle East’s Leading Business Travel Agency endorses the position of dnata Travel across the region as a valued partner for corporates, whilst its retention of the UAE’s Leading Travel Agency, and the addition of Abu Dhabi’s Leading Travel Agency cement its position as a preferred operator for people looking for flexibility and expertise when booking their flights, hotels holidays and travel ancillaries.
