Planet Travels survives global financial crunch

April 5- While the world suffered from the worst financial crisis in several years, Plant Travels & Tours LLC, has not been affected by this, said Ibrahim Nalkhande, Chief Operating Officer, Planet Group."The performance of the group's travel wing, Planet Travel & Tours LLC, is not that largely affected due to the spectrum of services and products offered to the travelers. We are lucky to have a very well balanced equation of different components whether it's business travel, retail and holidays, general sales agency, representations and advisory services, or inbound travel," he added.
Plant Travels has been around since 1989, providing a one-stop solution to meet the travel needs of the people in Dubai. "The one-stop solution for travel, tours and cargo expanded from one sales shop to five outlets at key locations in the UAE," he said, adding that Dubai witnessed a slowdown in 2009, and it gave Planet Travels and Tours, an opportunity to evaluate itself.
Planet Travels is also participating in the upcoming Arabian Travel Market Exhibition in Dubai from May 5-9.
