First quar­ter of 2017 brings record growth to Abu Dhabi

Travel Daily ME - - News -

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.”
