Al Tayyar Travel Group, Saudi Arabia’s largest travel company, is planning to expand into Egypt in early 2018, its chief executive told Reuters.

The move is part of a broader restructuring to build the firm’s leisure, hospitality and online sales services.

Al Tayyar announced on Wednesday that its board had approved a strategic transformation plan to consolidate its some two dozen subsidiaries into four new business units.

The plan shifts the firm’s focus from a traditionally heavy reliance on government travel contracts into advising leisure travelers on tourism plans, operating hotels and developing Arabic-language platforms for online ticket booking.
