Travelport unveils new Abu Dhabi office

Travelport – the leading distribution services and e-commerce provider for the global travel industry – has marked its continuous growth in the UAE with the opening of a new office in Abu Dhabi.

Travelport first established direct commercial operations in the UAE capital in 2009, and the move to the new premises in Shining Tower, Khalidia, is a testament to the company’s continued success in this significant Middle East region.

More than 50 Travelport customers, industry partners and staff gathered for the official opening, which – according to Ghulam Al Balooshi, Travelport’s Commercial Director for Saudi Arabia and the UAE – “underscored the company’s long-term commitment to Abu Dhabi”.

“This new office is an important investment for us,” Al Balooshi said as he cut the traditional silk ribbon.  “It forms part of our commitment to serve the needs of the travel industry in the UAE and its capital, including our valued travel agency customers, distributors and airline partners”.

Travelport has been enjoying remarkable success in Abu Dhabi since launching direct operations in 2009, and the UAE capital remains an important focus for the company’s Middle East operations.

“The travel industry in the UAE capital is continuing to develop at a rapid rate”, added Al Balooshi, “and this growth brings significant opportunities for the GDS industry with more and more agents seeking to work with a GDS partner. Our focus in Abu Dhabi therefore remains on providing the latest technology solutions and the highest levels of hands-on support to our customers and to the wider travel industry.”
