A tour operator that claims to have been one of the leading Hajj and Umrah specialists has ceased trading as an ATOL holder.

East London-based Amaana Tours had been selling packages to pilgrims since 2003.

According to its website, it was authorised by the Ministry of Hajj.

The Civil Aviation Authority said that it ceased trading as an ATOL holder on 29 June, just days before the annual pilgrimage to Mecca starts on 7 July.

“We are currently collating information from the company and will update this page as soon as possible,” said the CAA.

According to Companies House, Amaana Tours had four directors, Yunus Patel, Yaseen Patel, Zishaan Anjum and Rihaan Anjum.

The company wasn’t answering phone calls this morning.

On its website, Amaana says: “Since its inauguration in 2003, by the Grace of Allah, Amaana Tours has has established itself as one of the leading Hajj & Umrah specialists in the UK.”

It adds: “At Amaana Tours, making a profit is not our primary goal. Therefore we aim to make our packages great value for money, providing the necessities and a touch more for a smooth and stress free pilgrimage.”
