Our Managing Director, Sandra Owen MBE comes from an aviation background, she began her career in the airline industry in East Africa before arriving in Bahrain in 1971. After 10 years of working in Bahrain, a move to Dubai in 1981 with her family led to a job with British Airways.
During her time at British Airways, Sandra spotted a huge gap in the market to provide top quality customer service to high-level clientele.
The desire to provide a niche service led to the formation of Al Arabi Travel Agency in 1992; and her presence in the region remains prominent.
