Cozmo Travel, one of the largest and leading travel agencies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), yesterday launched its services in Dhaka to hook business from the growing number of Bangladeshi travelers.
Jamal Abdulnazar, chief executive officer of Cozmo, opened the company's footprint at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka. Saed Mohammed Al Muhairi, UAE ambassador to Bangladesh, attended as chief guest.
The Sharjah-headquartered travel management company has partnered with local RAS Holidays, an enterprise of MGH Group, to provide total travel solutions -- from planning to ticketing services, hotel bookings, the UAE visit visa, global visa process and organising activities at destinations around the world and the UAE.
Speaking on the occasion, Abdulnazar said launching business in 2010, Cozmo has developed its expertise for customised travel solutions for independent and corporate travelers.
Pointing out travel and tourism potentials among the Middle East, the UAE and Bangladesh, he said 11.3 percent of the UAE GDP came from the travel and tourism sector in 2017 and it was expected to rise by 4.9 percent this year.
Cozmo, a fully-owned enterprise of low-cost airline Air Arabia, has around three dozen branch offices in different gulf countries.
Kazi Wahidul Alam, editor of The Bangladesh Monitor; Bikramjit Ghosh, country manager of Air Arabia; Santosh Bikram Rana, business development manager of Cozmo Travel, and Abdur Rahim, director and chief operating officer of RAS Holidays, were present among others.
