September 16, (THEWILL) – The Principal Executive of FLYZONE Tourism, Mr Awomoyi Ayodeji, has been recognised as the travel personality of the year 2023.
The recognition, which was presented by the organisers of Africa Travel Market ‘Akwaaba, excited participants at the ongoing Africa Travel Market ‘Akwaaba’, inside the Eko Convention Centre.
FLYZONE Tourism is the leading Dubai Destination Management Company in Nigeria and West Africa at large.
The award has now elevated Mr Ayodeji operator of Flyzone, with the likes of Allen Onyema (Chairman, Air Peace) who was awarded the same in 2021.
This remarkable recognition serves as a testament to his exceptional achievements and contributions to the travel and tourism industry in Nigeria, particularly in the field of outbound travel.
Confirmation statement from the organisers of Africa Travel Market ‘Akwaaba in respect of the award read “he has been found worthy of this selection due to his unwavering dedication to excellence and innovative approach, as a trailblazer in the field of outbound travel.”
In his response, Ayodeji said, “I feel blessed and grateful to be recognized as one of the top 100 tourism personalities for 2023.”
Ayodeji noted that aside from the award, he was at the expo to interact with travel agencies and other related tourism outfits, saying, “I came to Akwaaba 2023 to see other travel agencies, airlines agencies, also to interact with some of my partners.
“I have been attending the Akwaaba Expo for the past four years now, and with this award, I will be encouraged to thrive more in tourism. I will use the opportunity to encourage travel agencies, bring innovations, and expand travel agencies’ horizons and I will continue to support travel agencies across Africa.
According to him, “the challenge mostly is the Nigeria passport, we go through rigorous processes to get the visas, even if we have genuine travellers that want to travel but most of the time we have limitations.”

They offer service that provides bespoke solutions to challenges experienced by Nigerian travel agencies.
“We have expanded our coast to Qatar, Uganda, Malaysia, East Africa, Kenya, Dubai, and Oman and we have a new product which is the Malta residence and we have also introduced all these products to our partners’ travel agents.”
