In addition, it has also announced affordable travel packages for its hotels in Jeddah for families to enjoy leisure and shopping break in the port city of Jeddah. The announcement is aimed at further strengthening the Elaf Group’s presence in Saudi Arabia’s booming tourism industry.
Saudi Arabia is working to broaden its travel, tourism and hospitality industries to generate more revenue and employment and increase their GDP contributions from 5.4 per cent to 5.7 per cent by 2020 in support of the country’s diversification from oil and gas to a non-oil economy.
Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, CEO, Elaf Group, said: “The Elaf Group strives hard to offer great value propositions to its clients by regularly introducing cost-efficient hotel packages. Our most recent launch of affordable and attractive packages for our hotels in Makkah, Madina and Jeddah are designed to enable our guests to perform Umrah and enjoy their holiday or business trip in Jeddah.
