Ali Bin Ali Travel & Cargo wins Gold at IATA conference

Ali Bin Ali Travel Division’s Chief Accountant Mr. Azhar Baksh won Gold at the IATA conference, marking yet another proud moment for Ali Bin Ali Holding.  

The conference held in Athens from June 25 to 27, included detailed sessions on Payment & FinTech in the aviation market, which ended with an extempore session that required participants to speak out on a topic worded ‘Finance for a better tomorrow in the Aviation Sector’.

Some 30-35 candidates from around the world participated. After the initial round, seven finalists were chosen by a multi-sectorial, multi-ethnic & multi-dimensional jury.

Finally, it was declared that the representative from Qatar, Mr. Baksh, had finished first. He was recognized with the Gold honor, and was followed by participants from Russia and China, who won Silver and Bronze, respectively.

Besides receiving the top honor, another key aspect of Mr. Baksh’s participation was that he was the lone representative who did not belong to an airline but a travel agency. This was a challenge for him as he was expected to have comparatively less insight’ into the aviation industry, from an airline’s point of view.

Elated at his achievement, Mr. Baksh said: “I thank the General Manager of Ali Bin Ali Travel & Cargo and CFO of Ali Bin Ali Holding for having given me this opportunity to learn about the aviation sector and enable me to represent my second home, Qatar. I express my deep happiness that I could contribute in keeping the ABA flag flying high at a forum with representatives from several nationalities sitting across, including those from the Middle East.”
