The launch of the new outlet expands dnata Travel’s retail network in Doha to nine strategically located travel hubs with a combined staff of 65 travel advisors. Popular holidays destinations for travellers in Qatar remain London, Paris, Thailand and Maldives with short break getaways to the UAE, Oman and Indian Ocean islands gaining popularity. The long term vision for dnata Travel’s retail hub expansion has also taken into in account the handling of inbound traffic expected for the 2022 FIFA football event, and to promote the country as a major tourism destination.
“The opening of our ninth travel hub is a testament to the service standards, quality travel products and overall success of dnata Travel in Qatar. We have seen our business grow exponentially over the past few years and I believe it is due to the speed to market, service innovation, technology, and staff training we offer”, said Rashid Alawadi, VP dnata Travel – Regions.
dnata Travel first entered Qatar in 2009 with its corporate travel business and has since grown to being amongst the leading travel management companies in Qatar catering to both individual and corporate. The company has experienced a yearly growth of 15- 20 per cent in overall business and more than 100 per cent growth in non-air business in the last three years.
