Al-Futtaim Travel, part of Al-Futtaim group, has launched an innovative programme designed to provide employment opportunities to Emirati housewives and graduates in line with the UAE government's directive to promote the participation of UAE Nationals in the private sector as expressed in the recently unveiled ABSHER initiative.
Working from the convenience of their home environment, the UAE ladies who have been selected will be able to deliver to their compatriots a diverse range of travel related services, from airline tickets, package holidays, children educational programmes, medical travel to honeymoons, car rentals or hotel accommodation.

"Thanks to Al-Futtaim Travel's long experience in and association with the Emirati community, we have developed a deep understanding of the discerning traveling needs of the local community which helped us create this win-win initiative designed to further improve customer satisfaction while creating jobs for Nationals."
According to the timetable of this unique, by GCC standards, initiative, the recruited UAE Nationals are currently attending a series of training modules designed to equip them with the know-how required to operate as Home Travel Councilors. Al-Futtaim Travel customers will be able to avail of the new service as of January 21st.
