Araco Qatar


Arabian Agencies Company, Part of Alfardan Group, the authorized dealer of Scania Trucks and buses since 2003 delivers 10 Scania Touring Coach Buses to Mowasalat (Karwa).

It is an exciting opportunity for ARACO to sell these iconic buses that will be first used during the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020™, scheduled to take place in February 2021. The agreement will further augment the region’s brand too as Scania is a prestigious worldwide name backed by full support for all parts, maintenance and repairs. This means downtime and associated costs can be kept to the bare minimum. With a global service network, Scania can always deliver to ensure a beneficial operating economy to its transportation partners across the globe.

CEO of Mowasalat (Karwa) (Mr. Fahad Saad Al Qahtani) and COO of Alfardan Automotive (Dr. Ma’n Al-Hamawi) acknowledge that this deal is an exciting development for both companies. ‘It is an honor to partner with Mowasalat (Karwa) and deliver the state of the art environmentally friendly Scania Touring Coach Buses. says Dr. Al-Hamawi. The Scania Buses are renowned for superb fuel efficiency, comfort, reliability, and the support offered is unrivalled. We are proud to be working with these particular buses.’


In fact, this specific partnership could not have been signed at a more auspicious time for both companies. With seating capacity of up to 47 and a tank holding 465 litres of diesel, the Scania Touring Bus is a powerful and economical work horse that also takes driver safety and comfort into account. With Euro 5 emissions compliant technology, the Scania Touring Coach bus complies with the State of Qatar directives based on the Ministry of Transport and Communications strategy for clean and environmentally friendly transportation solutions. The passengers too will benefit from 3-point seatbelts, reclining laterally adjustable Vega semi leather seats, and effective air conditioning system for maximum passenger comfort.


Having been working tirelessly to build ARACO’s position as a name to trust when it comes to buses such as the Scania Touring Bus, both companies are looking forward to the possibilities this collaboration will bring and the added exposure this prestigious sports event will create.
