Kanoo Travel

American Express franchise partner, the family owned Kanoo Travel Group, is the largest travel company in the Middle East, with a team of travel specialists in over 180 offices in the region and over 200 offices worldwide. The Kanoo family's involvement in air travel goes back to 1937 when the company provided refuelling facilities in Bahrain for Imperial Airways seaplanes in route to India and Australia. In 1947 Kanoo Travel became the first IATA agency in the Gulf and has grown into the largest travel company in the Middle East.

April 2007 saw Kanoo Travel branch out into the UK travel industry, after acquiring American Express' A High Street leisure travel businesses, in a franchise agreement which combines the service and brand values you would expect from 2 of the largest travel companies in the world.
