Doha: Ooredoo reported strong demand for its Ooredoo Passport service from companies, due to a higher number of executives travelling from Qatar in December 2016. 

Ooredoo has launched a number of new roaming options for businesses in 2016 that have helped swell this demand, including the introduction of the Ooredoo Monthly Passport for those travelling for longer periods.

In addition, travel companies and Hamad International Airport reported a surge of travellers in the last weeks of December. This trend has been amplified by the overall growth in business travel – according to the ITB World Travel Trends Report 2015/2016, the Middle East market has the strongest growth in terms of outbound business travel, with a 9 per cent increase in 2016. 

Ooredoo’s Monthly Passport offers more data and minutes, and is designed for employees travelling outside of Qatar for more than seven days, or for business customers on Shahry who want a larger communications allowance when abroad. 

With the Monthly Passport, users enjoy 300 roaming minutes and 4GB of roaming mobile data, and an extra 4GB of roaming data in GCC, for QR350. Ooredoo Passport and Monthly Passport can be subscribed to via SMS, the Ooredoo App, or through an Account Manager.
