Thailand has emerged as the top travel destination for GCC travellers in 2022
Dnata Representation Services (part of Dnata Travel Group) is growing its partnership with the Banyan Tree Group across Thailand as the country emerges as one of the most popular international travel destinations for GCC travellers in 2022.
Following the signing of the partnership, Dnata will now provide support for a range of Banyan Tree hotels and resorts across Thailand, offering travellers from the GCC exclusive holiday packages and dedicated local support.
Its representation will cover Banyan Tree Bangkok in the capital and multiple properties across the country’s largest island, Phuket. This includes Banyan Tree Phuket, which recently launched a new wellbeing resort, Banyan Tree Veya Phuket as part of its cluster; Angsana Laguna Phuket, soon to open highly-anticipated new restaurant Atoll set amid a lagoon; Homm Bliss South Beach Patong, and Cassia Phuket.
Sébastien Doussin, Dnata Travel Group DVP of Global Ground Services & Destination Management, commented: "As one of the Middle East’s longest-standing travel providers, we remain at the forefront of latest traveller trends across the region. Our enhanced partnership with the Banyan Tree Group, owner of some of the world’s most renowned luxury resorts, enables us to support our travellers with excellent hotel packages in some of the most sought-after travel destinations in the world, including Thailand and the Maldives."
Dnata’s enhanced coverage of Banyan Tree Group properties in Bangkok and Phuket, two areas of Thailand proving most popular with GCC travellers for summer 2022, comes in addition to its exclusive representation of its three signature hotels in the Maldives, including Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, Angsana Velavaru and Angsana Ihuru.
Benjawan Meksakul, Banyan Tree Group regional director of Sales & Marketing for Thailand and Laos, added: "We're pleased to appoint Dnata Representation Services, a well-known industry company as our Global Sales Agent in the Middle East.
"Having created successes for different hotel brands in the luxury and premium space, Dnata’s expertise and rich experience will see them implementing innovative sales and marketing strategies for our Thailand hotels post-Covid and create greater awareness for the global multi-brand ecosystem of Banyan Tree Group in the Middle East market."
