Kanoo Travel launches Dubai services centre


Kanoo Travel, a leading travel company in the Middle East, has opened a corporate services centre at Kanoo Towers in Bur Dubai.
“The Middle East region, and especially the UAE, has been growing at an unprecedented rate. With so much development taking place here, more and more global businesses are investing heavily in this region. As a result, the regional travel industry has also experienced a boom in both the consumer as well as the corporate segments,” said Mishal Kanoo, deputy chairman of The Kanoo Group.
“To keep up with the increasing travel demands, we decided to open a state-of-the-art corporate travel services centre in Dubai equipped with the latest technology which meets all international standards. The new office will offer our customers complete travel management solutions, convenience and 24/7 travel services with the highest levels of customer service.”
Kanoo Travel, which launched its retail travel and foreign exchange offices in the United Kingdom and France earlier this year, recently opened offices in Fujairah, Al Ain and the Burj Dubai business complex in the UAE, in addition to its expansion in Oman and Qatar. This new centre in Dubai is the first of many the travel company plans to open across the region.
“The launch of our latest corporate service centre in Dubai demonstrates our continued investment in ‘leading edge’ travel services and technology. Furthermore it is an outward sign of our determination to stay in the number one position in travel throughout the Middle East. The corporate service centre is one element in our business re-engineering process to ensure we remain focussed on providing the ‘world class’ service demanded by our customers,” said Julian Knott, divisional general manager, Kanoo Travel.
“Kanoo Travel has been the pioneer of the Gulf’s travel industry as we set up the first travel office in this region in 1935. We have a unique distinction of serving our customers throughout the Middle East through our own servicing network. Our objective is to provide our customers top-class professional travel management services using the latest technology with the best customer service.  The opening of our corporate travel services centre in Dubai is another example of our commitment towards our ever increasing base of customers in the region,” added Abdullah M Abo Khamseen, executive general manager, Kanoo Travel.
