Acquisition of Imagine Cruising by dnata World Travel

Deal typeTransaction Services

dnata, an Emirates Group company, has taken a 51% stake in the Swindon-based cruise-and-stay specialist, Imagine Cruising, which was set up four years ago. It follows dnata’s recent UK acquisitions of Travel Republic, Gold Medal and Stella Travel Services. The deal remains subject to regulatory approval in South Africa.

“Over the last 12 months dnata has worked very closely with BDO on a number of projects both in the UK and internationally; and has built a strong working relationship with the entire team. I have always found their approach to be flexible and pragmatic, always delivering robust advice in a timely manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending BDO.”
