Eng. Omar bin Abdul Aziz Al-Mubarak, the Director General of the Licensing Department at the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage, charged with acting on behalf of the investment sector, said that tourism has developed significantly over the last ten years in the Saudi Arabia, especially after the SCTH had assumed the jurisdiction of supervising it. He pointed out that years ago, the hotel companies in the Saudi market did not exceed 10, but today their number has risen up to 40 trademarks. He also mentioned that the number of hotel rooms has increased from 220 thousand hotel rooms to 490 thousand hotel rooms in all Saudi Arabia regions, with an expected number of 650 thousand hotel rooms in 2022.

 

Al-Mubarak stated that this rapid development in the tourism sector in Saudi Arabia is the result of the great efforts made by the State represented by the interest of His Highness the President of the SCTH in the partners, especially the investors in the tourism industry, through the years of organizing and classifying tourism services to protect fair competition and protect investors and consumers at the same time. He expected the tourist movement to increase all over the regions of Saudi Arabia after the opening of tourist visas, which are being finalized recently by KSA.

 

The Director General of the Licensing Department at the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage said, during the press conference held for the signing of an agreement between Al Tayyar Travel Holding Group and the American Choice Hotel Group to operate and manage seven new hotels in Saudi Arabia at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Riyadh, We, at the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage, are pleased to sign this agreement between Al Tayyar Travel Holding Group, one of the largest travel and tourism companies in Saudi Arabia,  and in the Arab world and one of the largest American companies in the hotel industry. We hope that God will grant us success and a better future for tourism investment. And the door of the SCTH is open to all investors in order to overcome all difficulties and obstacles in the development of local tourism.

 

From his part, Eng. Abdul-Aziz Al Hassan, Director of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage in Riyadh, demanded  Al Tayyar Travel Holding Group and all investors in the tourism sector in Saudi Arabia to head for tourism investment in the governorates of Riyadh region, especially in the tourist accommodation sector, stressing that the cities and governorates of the region are abound with many archaeological and tourist sites, thus, they need more tourism investments and support of the accommodation and tourism services to attract more tourists and visitors.

 

Mr. Abdullah Al Daoud, Chief Executive Officer of Al Tayyar Travel Holding Group said, This agreement marks the beginning of partnership with Choice International Hotels as a key element in the transformation plan announced by the Group last year to develop and operate 6000 keys by 2022. He pointed out that they are seeking to provide a realistic hospitability experience to their customers at competitive prices and distinct services in order to meet their needs in line with the Kingdom's objectives to encourage domestic tourism and the market of Hajj and Umrah. He pointed out that the new hotels will be in this way: three hotels of Comfort Inn and Suites in Riyadh, Comfort Inn and Suites, and two Quality Inn and Suites in the city of Jeddah and Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel in Taif, expecting them to operate during the third quarter in 2019.
