“Some markets such as the CIS, specifically the Russian market, came back very strongly. We have also seen a very good increase from the UK market. Both are very significant source markets for Dubai. This year’s many markets returned back in a big way while other markets disappeared altogether for some reasons. [...] Dubai’s tourism fundamentals are extremely strong and its vision incomparable,” noted Aridi.
