World-leading travel technology provider, Traveltek Group, has inaugurated a Middle East operation to fill the current gap in the market for advanced travel booking solutions.
The UK-based company has opened its first office in Dubai and appointed two highly-experienced travel technology professionals to spearhead its Gulf expansion strategy.
Vinod Singh and Vivek Katheriya join the company to assume the positions of regional manager, Middle East and regional sales manager, India and MENA, respectively.
Both recruits possess valuable Middle East travel technology experience, having previously worked for renowned industry players.
In their new roles, Singh and Katheriya will focus on targeting the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman, all markets where travel agents, tour operators and wholesalers are in urgent need of sophisticated travel technology to help drive efficiencies, boost sales and meet the complex demands of their customers.
Traveltek has made a name for itself among the global travel industry, having provided award-winning solutions for more than two decades.
Global sales director, Traveltek, Peter Whittle declared: “Given our proven track record of delivering a powerful and successful selling platform to the international travel trade, we are well positioned to harness the healthy growth of the GCC travel and tourism industry. Our global expertise, combined with the market and technology experience demonstrated by Vinod and Vivek, will ensure we can cater to the needs of the region’s travel trade now and in the future, particularly as demand for dynamic packaging and cruise booking solutions grows at a rapid rate.”
Traveltek’s web-based technology allows agencies and tour operators to package and sell complex itineraries that comprise flights, tours, hotels, transfers, car rental, cruises, attraction tickets, plus more. Companies can also package their own stock, third-party stock, or a mixture of both.
Consolidated cruise content from 190 of the world’s most popular lines is available to Traveltek clients, bringing supplier integration onto one single platform.
Traveltek additionally provides multi-channel sales options and can display packages in multiple currencies and languages. Options to localise solutions for the Middle East market, including Arabic-language content, will be accessible to travel companies that partner with the travel technology specialist.
