Transport and Hospitality
FACILITATING BOTH aforementioned facets of modern day Abu Dhabi life - work and play is an ongoing upgrade of the city’s transport links, especially regarding air and road travel. The visa process has also become more streamlined in recent years to aid efficiencies as demand to enter the city increases.
Increases have reached as much as 17 percent in some comparative yearon-year statistics since 2015, and falling into line with these improvements have been general enhancements of the city’s public transport array too.
Public busses, taxis, ferries and air links have all been improved upon and modernised, and in all truth, there is no real cut and dry reason to choose one over the other. It largely comes down to personal preference, where you need to be, and how long you have to get there when deciding on the best way to travel around internally.
From a hospitality perspective, luxury hotels have been cited as a strong factor for the increasing number of global meetings taking place in Abu Dhabi, and growing appeal to the business travel demographic consequently. Locations such as Emirates Palace and Jumeirah at Etihad Towers offer their own exclusive event venues, while leisure facilities such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld provide engaging alternatives for event planners.
Armed Forces Officers Club & Hotel, Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort, and Al Marfa Pearl Hotels Management LLC are further examples of Abu Dhabi’s plentiful hotel assortment.
And event organisers and delegates are also subsequently taking advantage of the significant tourism options provided by Abu Dhabi from year-round sunshine to a selection of popular beaches.
