Travel Connections Arabia expands into Egypt


TCA (Travel Connections Arabia), a leading global sales and marketing outsourcing agency for the luxury hospitality, tourism and travel industry in the Middle East, has opened an office Cairo, Egypt, the 14th largest market in the world, ready to tap the burgeoning luxury travel industry.

With a population of over 100 million, Egypt has millions of potential travellers to tap, with internet use growing exponentially, at approximately 22 per cent annually, or approximately 10 million users a year while it has 30 million smartphone users and are becoming more adept at looking for online travel solutions.

Ahmed El Hamzawy, CEO for the Egypt office, said: “Egypt is an unusual market in that cash is still the preferred mode of payment, in part due to a lack of trust in online payment methods, and a lack of access to credit cards. However, in 2019, Egyptians spent a total of $5.1 billion on outbound tourism, with an average daily spend of $950. On average they spend between 10-20 days during peak travel periods with more than 60 per cent of nights spent in a five-star hotel.”

El Hamzawy’s 27 plus years of experience working in the Hospitality and Tourism sector has seen him witness and contribute to this rapidly evolving industry. El Hamzawy earlier led the growth of Mubasher Holidays and Hotels Arabia before breaking away to develop LTE Arabia and now takes the reigns of TCA Egypt based in Cairo.

Ahmed M. Soliman, CEO of TCA Group of Companies, said: “As our regional office on the ground in Egypt, Ahmed El Hamzawy forms the eyes and ear of the TCA operation and is perfectly positioned to hire and manage any and all manpower requirements in Egypt, as well as drive the luxury travel market for the country.”

TCA’s outstanding collection of hospitality and tourism clients include some of the most exclusive hotels and resorts around the world, such as The Langham, London, eight exceptional Constance Hotels & Resorts, spread across the Indian Ocean’s top destinations: the Seychelles, the Maldives, Mauritius and Madagascar, as well as Evok Hotels, Chenot Palace Weggis and Chenot Palace Gabala, AKA Hotel Residences, The Leela Goa, The Lungarno Collection, and Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, to name a few.
