The newly formed Association for International Travel and Tourism has created the new role of Chairman and appointed Ali Bahaijoub to the role.

The AITT was set up at the end of 2017 as a membership organisation with the aim of helping new and established destinations develop their tourism industries.

Ali Bahaijoub is director general of the Centre of Euro-Mediterranean and African Studies and runs North South Publications.

Said AITT Director General John Pinniger: “It was important for the AITT to have a Chairman and we are delighted to be able to appoint such an experienced industry name to the post”.

The Association is led by a broad-based general management committee with directors responsible for each region of the World. There is an Executive Committee dealing with the main day-to-day functions, including liaison with hotels, airlines, rail travel operators and other associations.

Membership is open to everyone from national tourism offices, cities and resorts through to travel companies, individuals and students, all of whom will benefit from a wide range of activities including: a regular newsletter, partnerships with international tourism associations, professional development in association with colleges and commercial training providers, and networking events with diverse destinations and service providers.
