Qatar Airways Holidays And Shangri-La Hotels Give Joint Presentation

Doha, Qatar : Last week Qatar Airways Holidays and Shangri-La Hotels held a joint function at the Diplomatic Club. Attending were high-profile delegates from both companies and some 55 representatives from local travel agencies.

Qatar Airways Holidays, the leisure division of Qatar's national carrier, Qatar Airways, joined forces with Asia's leading luxury hotel group to educate local travel agents about the individual companies and what it is they have to offer.

In his welcome address Lyndon Mendonca, Head of Qatar Airways Holidays, expressed his delight to be working together with the prestigious hotel group and gave details of the special packages available through Qatar Airways Holidays for stays in the Shangri-La Hotel Dubai. He also announced promotional discounts available for guest booking their stay with Qatar Airways Holidays at select food and beverage-outlets of the hotel.

The award-winning hotel group Shangri-La, whose name is synonymous with an imaginary place of complete bliss and delight and peace, originally coined by writer James Hilton in his novel "Lost Horizons", offer a choice of 42 hotels throughout Asia and the Middle East. Mr. Walid Wafik, Shangri-la's Director of Sales Middle East, gave a presentation showing the attending travel agents just why the group is so popular.

The recently opened Shangri-la Hotel, Dubai, was topic of the presentation by Mr. Hassan Jawhari, Business development Manager GCC, and he gave further details of the special joint package available from Shangri-la Hotels and Qatar Airways Holidays, as part of the group's wide range of tailor-made holiday packages to top-hotels around the world.

The evening continued with dinner, entertainment and a raffle draw.
