Direct Flights Boosting Sales

Sardar Mohammad Khan is General Manager, Ambassador Travels, a family-run Qatar-based company, which owns Safir Holidays and online booking engine Yal la! We started by asking him about his thoughts on this year’s ITB Berlin?

I left ITB Berlin feeling very optimistic about the future. We have both B2C and B2B elements to the business and I had a team of six people working at the show with me. We are expecting very good business from ITB Berlin.

Have you found new suppliers in the ITB Buyers Circle?
We have had a lot of demand. We are doing good business from Georgia and Armenia – Qatar Airways has started direct flights from Doha.

What are the benefits to you of being in the ITB Buyers Circle?
ITB Berlin is a very busy show, so it is good that we have a good area to discuss business and if we want to talk confidentially, there are meeting rooms available too.
