Saudi-based travel giant Seera Group has joined hands with Disneyland Paris to strengthen demand from Saudi Arabia, the wider GCC and North Africa.
With this new alliance, Seera is now a general sales agent for Saudi Arabia and the wider GCC as well as North Africa, Lebanon and Jordan.
Seera said it will sell Disney packages that include hotel accommodation and park entry across all its platforms, including corporate and government travel platforms.
Seera added that it will also create customised packages covering flight and ancillary products to create added value for its customers.
Abdullah Bin Nasser Aldawood, CEO, Seera Group, said: “We are constantly evolving our product offering in line with the needs of the regional travel market. In addition to driving continuous innovation, we work with global leaders to unlock new opportunities to offer added value for our customers. Our partnership with Disneyland Paris is designed to make unforgettable memories for family visitors from the region.”
Brigid McDonnell, head of sales, Disney Destinations International, added: “Every year, we create Disney Memories that will last a lifetime for guests coming from different horizons, and we are so pleased to develop our new partnership with Seera to give this opportunity to the many Saudi families eager to visit us.”
