Travelers in Kuwait will be able to fly directly to Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, starting December 8 thanks to a newly established flight route by Jazeera Airways.
Supported by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), the independent airline announced the new direct flights to Al Ain at a travel trade event in Kuwait. The event included a number of DCT Abu Dhabi’s key partners in Al Ain, such as Rotana Hotels, Ayla Hotels, Al Bada Resorts, and Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting, and Golf Club.
Abu Dhabi has witnessed tremendous growth in tourism from Kuwait over recent years. In 2019, the emirate has registered a 22.3 percent increase in the number of hotel guests from Kuwait during the first half of the year, in addition to hosting over 15,000 Kuwaiti hotel guests within that period with an average length of stay of around 3 days per guest.
Through establishing the new direct routes, DCT Abu Dhabi hopes to encourage travelers from Kuwait to visit the city of Al Ain in a move to boost tourism to the ‘heritage heartland’ of the emirate.
