Altayyar Group

our history

In 1980, Dr. Nasser bin Aqeel Al Tayyar, founder of Al Tayyar Travel Group, set up a small travel agency, with a mere four employees in Al Takhassusi Street, in the heart of Riyadh’s business center, with a total capital of just one million SAR. Today, Al Tayyar Travel Group Holding Company is one of the largest travel and tourism companies in Saudi Arabia with a prominent local, regional and international presence.

Al Tayyar Travel Group Holding Company is a Saudi joint-stock company.  Boasting over 3,000 employees, the company serves customers in over 430 branches in Saudi Arabia and abroad. The Group understands the value of having a presence in its client’s favourite tourist destinations, and thus has invested in branches across KSA, the GCC, Egypt, Sudan, Lebanon, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Canada and other popular tourist locations.

Under the able supervision of founder and businessman Dr. Nasser bin Aqeel Al Tayyar, we have accomplished a lot since inception, experienced constant performance growth and in 2012, transformed the company into  a Saudi Stock Exchange-listed public joint stock company. This growth is reflected in the continuous capital increase since 1979 from one million Saudi riyals to 800 million riyals in 2009.

In 2013, the company’s assets were valued at 1,200 million riyals, an increase of 400 million riyals from retained earnings, allocating one free share for every two active shares, as per the General Assembly’s decision taken on February 4th, 2013. In 2014, the company accomplished its vision of expansion into global destinations, raising its capital to 1,500 million riyals, an increase of 300 million riyals from retained earnings, and allocating one free share for every four shares outstanding as per the General Assembly’s vote on March 20th, 2014. The company’s expansion into a corporation allowed a capital raise to two billion riyals in 2015, a profit increase of 500 million riyals, giving away one free share for every three shares outstanding, as per the General Assembly’s March 4th, 2015 decision.
