Travel offices losses keep rising – 90% workers lose jobs


KUWAIT CITY, May 2: A member of the Board of Directors of the Federation of Tourism and Travel Offices, Abdul Rahman Al-Kharafi, said the crisis of tourism and travel offices has greatly exacerbated and continues to worsen with the passage of time, as office losses have reached more than 100 million dinars since the beginning of the Corona pandemic.

Al-Kharafi told the daily the losses are calculated at 8 million dinars per month. He added, the closure of about 200 travel and tourism offices led to a decrease in losses in this sector, and that about 90% of office workers were laid off because of the inability to pay their salaries in light of the insufficient operating income, as most offices now employ only one worker to check the accounts and all related matters.
