Top Tourism Award for Emirates
Tourism Malaysia has named Emirates Holidays as ‘Best Foreign Tour Operator from the Middle East and Africa region’ in its Tourism Awards 2000 scheme<br>
A gala evening held earlier this month in Kuala Lumpur by Malaysia’s tourism promotion body, Tourism Malaysia, proved to be successful for Emirates Holidays. Out of 33 awards that were dished out to various individuals and organisations in the tourism industry, Emirates scooped first place for ‘Best Foreign Tour Operator from the Middle East and Africa region’.
The vote was based on the number of tourists Emirates sends to Malaysia, its sales network, the reliability of its services and its overall contribution towards promoting Malaysia.
“The selfless and tireless endeavours to promote and develop Malaysia as a leading destination have helped make the tourism industry the booming and exciting sector it is today,” said Dato’ Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir, Malaysia’s minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism.
The Awards scheme, launched in 1987 by the Malaysian Ministry of Culture Arts and Tourism, is intended to encourage tourist organisations to achieve the highest level of professionalism in service and product quality.
