The Elaf Group of Companies for Travel, Tourism and Hotels recently inked a strategic contract to accommodate 6,000 pilgrims from Egypt during the 1433 Hajj season at the ‘Elaf Al Multaqa Hotel’, Makkah. The move is set to achieve better cooperation with the Egyptian market.
It also follows recent industry reports which expect this year’s Hajj season to gain larger momentum as travel and tourism agencies ensure compliance with the directives of the Ministry of Hajj. The contract was signed by Ziyad bin Mafhouz and HE Major General Mohammed Ibrahim Al Attar, Assistant Minister for Interior, in the presence of Mohammed Effat, Vice-President, and Ahmed Abdullah, Sales and Marketing Manager, Elaf Group.
Bin Mafhouz stressed on the need to use all available resources to reinforce relations with neighbouring countries and Egypt in particular, as well as to meet all needs of pilgrims and Umrah performers.
“Our development-oriented moves aim to provide better and value-added services to guests,” he added. During the event, Bin Mahfouz further touched upon Elaf’s upcoming projects, namely Elaf Bakkah Hotel which offers up to 835 rooms.
