Dadabhai Travel chairman Mohammed Dadabhai:
On this momentous day, I look back with pride and satisfaction and I also look forward with lot of optimism and confidence as the business-friendly approach and clear message from the leaders of our country helps us plan our future strategy. Our gradual and sustained growth is undeniably due to our team and the support and continued patronage of our clients who are some of the most prestigious financial and commercial institutions in Bahrain.
Dadabhai Travel managing director Aziz Gilitwala:
It has been a tough but educational journey over the last 40 years. What started as a two-man travel agency in a 200 square feet office, is today, Bahrain’s largest
with a team of over 100 people in Bahrain, spread over 17 locations in the kingdom. This is in addition to an amazing team of 250 dedicated and committed professionals spread across the GCC.
Under the guidance of our farsighted and visionary Chairman, Mr Mohammed Dadabhai, I have been very privileged to witness quite a few landmark developments in our company’s history. But, the one that gives me the most satisfaction is when we moved into our own premises, an iconic heritage building in the heart of Manama which became our head office where we centralised the entire operations of our travel agency.
Dadabhai Travel chief operations officer Ms Shahnaz AlQaseer:
Today, Dadabhai Travel celebrates 40 years of exemplary service and dedication to our business partners, our country, and the industry as a whole. As Bahrain’s premier travel agency and regional leader, we are committed to our core ethics and the individuals that embody them. This is the essence of our organisation and it gives us the strength we have to be market leaders during the good times and bad.
Dadabhai Travel director Adnan Gilitwala:
As we look to the future, we hope to build on 40 years’ worth of the company’s values, foundations and culture, to leverage the opportunities that our industry presents us with globally. In the years to come, we plan to completely revamp the IT infrastructure to create a sustainable and scalable organisation, in addition to focusing on growth and expansion into new markets using both existing resources and those in development.
