Time Hotels has opened its new central reservations office (CRO) in Egypt.

This move, according to officials, was done to expand the company’s footprint across the Middle East and North Africa. 

Located in Cairo, the new office will manage room inventories for all hotels. It will also coordinate and manage all reservations, providing up-to-date rates and availability for various distribution channels including TIME Hotels’ online booking engine, its global distribution system and online travel agents.

Time Hotels CEO Mohamed Awadalla said in a statement: "Opening our new CRO in Cairo reflects not only the potential of the Egypt market, but its strategic geographical position, serving the wider MENA market, in particular the Levant and the North African markets.”
