Musafir Expands Operations to Saudi Arabia, Targeting Corporate Travel Sector
In a strategic move, UAE-based travel agent musafir.com has officially launched its operations in Saudi Arabia, seeking to capitalize on the Kingdom's booming tourism sector and growing corporate travel demand.
The inauguration of the Saudi base aligns with the transformative objectives outlined in Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 initiative.
Surge in Tourism Revenues in Saudi Arabia
Sachin Gadoya, co-founder of Musafir.com, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Thani were present during the ceremonial opening ceremony. With the Kingdom's tourist income reaching a remarkable SR37 billion ($9.8 billion) in the first quarter of 2023, the decision to join the Saudi Arabian market is well-timed. The fact that Saudi Arabia is actively working to diversify its economy away from its reliance on oil is demonstrated by this spike.

The travel agency aims to provide tailor-made travel solutions, seamless booking experiences, and dedicated support to address the unique travel needs of businesses in the Kingdom.
Commitment to Regional Expansion
The new corporate headquarters in Saudi Arabia are a crucial part of their expansion strategy, according to Sheikh Al Thani, who underscored their commitment to regional expansion. As part of the country's initiatives to diversify its economy, the goal is to satisfy the growing demand for travel among the Kingdom's most discerning consumers.
Centrally Located Office in Riyadh
Acnaz Center on Tahliah Street, Al Olaya, Riyadh, is home to a brand new office that has a cutting-edge multilingual contact center. The whole customer experience will be enhanced by providing Musafir.com's customers with specialized 24/7 support through this contact center.
Anticipated Contribution to Growth and Efficiency
