Kuwait-based Al Rashed International’s long-time collaborator in Qatar, Al Jaber Travels and Tours, has signed up as ATG Qatar.

Established in 2013, Al Jaber Travels and Tours provides business travel, visa support and MICE services to many of Qatar’s local corporations and marine companies.

Al Rashed International Travel Co WLL will serve ATG’s clients locally as ATG Kuwait. The agency was established in 1975 and evolved to cater to the demands of the growing Kuwaiti markets.

ATG has operated in both Kuwait and Qatar via its ATG Middle East regional office in Dubai since 2014, however, the addition of ATG Kuwait and ATG Qatar strengthens ATG’s presence in the region significantly, enabling ATG to provide more localized support to clients.

In addition to ATG Kuwait and ATG Qatar, ATG Travel Worldwide has on boarded the following agencies to provide regional or local country services to its multi-national client base.

Travel Support & Services Nordic AB, based in Stockholm, will serve as ATG Nordics; Tokyo Masters Co Ltd, based in Tokyo, Japan, will serve as ATG Japan; Lien Luc Dia Co Ltd, based in HCMC, Vietnam, will serve as ATG Vietnam; ATG Nordics will serve as ATG’s micro-regional solution for Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden through its offices in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden. Founded in 2010, ATG Nordics is staffed with experts in operational and technical setups for European travel agencies.

“ATG is thrilled to have these five dynamic, professional agencies join our franchise network,” stated Hans Trommel, Executive Director of ATG Travel Worldwide, responsible for ATG’s global network growth, adding, “Establishing a local country office in both Kuwait and Qatar further demonstrates ATG’s commitment to our expansion and development in the Middle East market.”

The five new agencies will operate through ATG’s proprietary Enterprise Quality Exchange platform (EQX), which sets ATG apart from its global competitors. EQX harmonizes the consistency of service delivery across all countries and is a highly secure system of proprietary technologies and protocols allowing ATG to offer globally capable, dynamic, real-time, quality planning, assurance and control, allowing the local agency to focus on traveler happiness.

The newly joined international members will take advantage of ATG’s Global Hotel Program, training workshops and annual Summits, as well as implementing ATG’s product powerhouse of proprietary technologies including ATG l INSIGHTS (reporting), ATG l BALDWIN (intelligent booking), ATG l TRAVELSPACE (customer-facing portal), ATG l EXTRA (traveler inquiry management) and ATG’s suite of products specifically designed for Human Resources needs.

ATG continues to expand into new markets, constantly extending global standards and services for global and multi-national clients and offering franchise opportunities for leading local travel management companies, specializing in business travel and meetings & events services.
