”Kanoo Travel is also one of the first travel companies in the country to introduce exclusive ladies centres,” said Ali Abdullah Kanoo, the company’s director.

The call centre has earned praise from the company’s clients.

Over the years, working as a teacher in girls-only schools was the only job sanctioned for Saudi women, but recently there has been a growing number of Saudi professional women and female doctors.

”Saudi Arabia is a very important market. Over the past few years, our business has grown tremendously in the country,” said another company official, Othman Al-Ghamdi.
