A Saudi company specializing in travel, tourism and hotels recently honored its agents in Egypt, Algeria, Turkey, Morocco, Indonesia and Malaysia for achieving positive results this year. Special felicitation ceremonies were held, and were attended by Elaf Group President Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, head of marketing communications, and other department heads of the group.
Bin Mahfouz revealed that the group’s dealers outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, mainly in Egypt, Algeria, Turkey Morocco, Indonesia and Malaysia have done exceedingly well in serving the increasing number of pilgrims coming to Saudi Arabia during the 2012 Ummrah and Hajj seasons. He also affirmed Elaf’s plans to expand its business to have more agents across the major countries with Muslim population.
The increasing demand helped raise revenues from airline bookings and hotel reservations throughout Makkah and Madina while other sources boosted the performance of services such as car rentals, visa issuances and Hajj permit processing. The agents efficiently facilitated the arrival and return of pilgrims in full accordance with the laws specified by the General Administration for Pilgrimage (Hajj) and Islamic Endowments.
“The success of Elaf Group is closely linked with the performance of our valued dealers across the region, which makes it important to reward and motivate our dealers who perform consistently year-on-year. The outstanding performance of our dealers during this hajj season was another example of how they share our vision for quality and excellence, which are central to sustained success,” concluded Bin Mahfouz.
