Kanoo Travel—one of the divisions of The Kanoo Group and Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo Group—has won “Best Travel Management Company in the Middle East Award” and “Leading Travel Agency for restarting COVID recovery Award” in the recently concluded Arabian Travel Awards.


The division, deemed the largest Travel Company in the region, has been conferred with the recognitions during the award ceremony that took place on November 1 at Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre.


The Best Travel Management Company in the Middle East Award distinguishes the most dynamic and efficient travel company in the region, offering comprehensive and specialized services as well as unmatched achievements that guarantee the highest levels of customer satisfaction.


The Leading Travel Agency for restarting COVID recovery Award, meanwhile, puts a spotlight on the travel company that has shown the ability to overcome the recent challenges posed by COVID-19, and continued to grow the successful business through passion, commitment, and innovation.


With these recognitions, deemed among the highest distinctions in the Arabian Travel Awards, Kanoo Travel has once again raised the Kanoo brand flag high in the travel and leisure landscape—reflecting the division’s exceptional efficiency and commitment to provide only the best service for its partners.


Expressing his deepest gratitude for the awards, Zaeem Gama, the Divisional CEO of Kanoo Travel, said: “I am extremely delighted about the recognitions received by Kanoo Travel, as it reflects the immense efforts exemplified by our team. This is a testimony of our commitment to garner success despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, as well as our capabilities to rise again and thrive better. The continued strength demonstrated by Kanoo Travel, of course, would not possible without the continuous trust of our clients. Thank you for believing in our devotion to bring the best travel services in the region.”


Kanoo Travel is the product of Kanoo Group’s interest in pioneering the travel industry in the region. The Group’s interest in travel started in 1937, when the company used to provide refuelling facilities for Imperial Airline seaplanes en route to India and Australia. Then, in 1947, Kanoo Travel became the first IATA agency in the Gulf. And then in 1997, it became the very first travel company in the Middle East to receive the ISO certification.


The division eventually grew into becoming the largest Travel Company in the region, operating in 180 IATA locations with a large portfolio of corporate clients in the Region. It also has a strong Global presence through its Network Partner - American Express Travel Services and a 24-hour Regional Call Center.


“The division has truly given an immense contribution to lifting the travel and leisure industry in the region, as well as strengthening further the Kanoo name. I am very happy to be part of the Kanoo Travel team,” said Aubrey Heldt, the Divisional General Manager for Travel Operations of Kanoo Travel.


Arabian Travel Awards is deemed the most prestigious travel and hospitality award-giving body in the region, recognizing top achievers in the Middle East’s Travel and Hospitality scene. Winners of Arabian Travel Awards are selected through a cutthroat judging and voting processes by a panel of judges that are considered experts in their respective arenas in the field.


Among those who attended this year’s Arabian Travel Awards on behalf of Kanoo Travel include Aubrey Heldt; Nayeem Sayed, Kanoo Travel’s Head of Client Management; and Aamit Gupta, Kanoo Travel’s Head for Client MICE and Holidays.
