Dubai tourism aims to strike gold in India with more air connectivity

Dubai wants more air connectivity with India, to double the number of tourists from its biggest source market in the coming years. A record 2.1 million Indians visited Dubai in 2017, and the number continues to expand in the current year.


“The air connectivity is never enough. We are running at almost full capacity. With the kind of campaigns we are running, demand should keep going up. We are working with Indian carriers to facilitate dialogue with the civil authorities and the airports in Dubai to make it easier for them to bring in more capacity,” Issam Kazim, chief executive, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), said.


About 1.2 million Indians visited Dubai in the January-July period of this year, growing about 2 per cent over last year. “The base is high,” said Kazim.


India has continuously been the biggest source of tourists for Dubai since 2015. Kazim said the numbers from India can double to 4 million in the next few years.


“I truly believe our tourism products resonate so well with the Indian audience and this will be visible when we reach out to the right people with the right messages. The potential to double the numbers from India is realistic. The outbound travel from India is starting to grow a lot more,” he added.
