In line with its commitment to honour Egyptian agents and tourism companies, Elaf Group of Companies, a leader in Saudi travel, tourism and hospitality, recently held its annual ceremony at the InterContinental City Stars Hotel, Cairo. Mr. Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, President of the group, revealed that the company catered to more than 20 per cent of the 770,000 Egyptian pilgrims that visited Saudi Arabia in 2010.
“This impressive performance is the main reason we are celebrating our success with our valued Egyptian partners,” said Bin Mahfouz. He also pointed out that the company's future projects include the renewal of Elaf Kinda Hotel and the establishment of four new hotels in line with the company’s plans to provide an additional 2,400 rooms by 2013.
“Our Egyptian agents and the Elaf Group have always been committed to offering the highest standard of services and thus ensure the attainment of our goal of increasing the total hotel rooms to more than 500 in Makkah, Madinah Al Munawara and Jeddah. In addition, we intend to increase the number of agents working with the Group to more than 95 in various countries,” he added.
The attendees commented on the excellent services extended by Elaf to Hajj and Ummrah pilgrims in various hotels in Saudi Arabia.
