Kanoo Holidays, the specialist division of Kanoo Travel, unveiled its new brand identity, range of holiday products and state-of-the-art online booking system at an event held at Grosvenor House, West Marina Beach in Dubai. The launch event, which was attended by representatives from leading airlines, travel agencies, hotels and other industries, also featured multimedia presentations of Kanoo Holidays’ new logo, products and features.
“The Kanoo name has historical significance and is synonymous with trust in the travel and tourism sector. Kanoo Holidays’ new brand identity is a deliberate attempt to consolidate on these inherent strengths. The fresh brand personality reflects our company’s vision to position Kanoo Holidays as a holiday expert, which creates enjoyable new holiday experiences for customers. The identity also symbolises the holiday concept of freedom, an escape from the routine and a promise of an exciting experience,” said Mr. Abdulla Abo Khamseen, Executive General Manager, Kanoo Travel.
“Our new identity expresses Kanoo Holidays’ ambition to emerge as a specialist provider of holiday products. We want to be perceived as a proactive knowledgeable holiday adviser capable of offering specialist services to customers.” Mr. Abo Khamseen added.

The brochures include a selection of the world’s finest holiday destinations and contain a wealth of information covering accommodation, car hire and sight-seeing tours offering customers a one-source guide to plan a memorable holiday.
Mr. Grant Holmes, General Manager, Kanoo Holidays explained, “Our new brochures have been designed keeping in mind current travel trends and individual customer preferences. Each resort has also been reviewed and rated according to their quality. The “Kanoo Value” rating helps customers to easily identify the hotel or accommodation that is most suitable.
