First quarter of 2017 brings record growth to Abu Dhabi
1,164,313 guests checked into the emirate’s hotels and hotel apartments. Abu Dhabi has achieved a record 4% rise in the number of hotel guest arrivals over the first three months of the year in comparison to the same period in 2016. The UK has made a steady start to the year, with 60,835 British visitors checking into Abu Dhabi hotels in the first quarter of 2017, less than half a percent down on the same period last year.
This makes the UK the third largest overseas source market for international visitors into the emirate, behind China and India.
HE Saif Saeed Ghobash, director general of TCA Abu Dhabi, said: “Following a record year for the number of guest arrivals into the emirate in 2016, we welcome this increase as we continue to pursue our target of attracting 4.9 million visitors by the end of 2017.”
